Electronic Jihad on Thursday

I was unable to post on my blog today, then I thought, what the heck! Well, here is a likely reason but I have nothing to do with it nor am I the right person to comment, I am rephrasing some of the information which have started puncturing the wall of the Internet with the bulleted information.

A coordinated online strike against Internet servers by terrorists, dubbed "electronic jihad," may or may not strike this week, security experts said. One security researcher in Moscow warned that Thursday would be the day in question. But a recent string of attacks on primary Internet services and the unraveling of major encryption routines are raising concerns in the Internet operator community.

"The hackers who have proclaimed 'electronic jihad' have enough experience and resources to paralyze the Internet for several hours at least," Kaspersky said report.

"The e-jihad has been discussed for years, but an undisputed attack has yet to surface," said Ken Dunham, director of malicious code at iDefense Inc. of Reston, Va. For the most part, coordinated "hacktivist" attacks have been "more talk than walk," he added.

I suppose this is one of those American nigthmare, which they keep on seeing ever since September 11.

It raises to feverish pitch whenever this particular date approaches near.

Poor guys. They are scared like hell. As the popular saying, Dhoodh Ka Jala, Chhanchh Phoonk-Phoonk ker Peeta hai :-)
