Electronic Jihad Site Taken Down

This is an interesting twist on cyberterrorism. The Al-jinan web site, taken down last week by law enforcement authorities, allowed users to download an application, complete with a Windows GUI, for conducting Denial of Service (DoS) attacks against web sites perceived to be anti-Islamic.

The site was up for over four years. Although it was hosted here in the US, the domain was registered in Beirut, keeping control of the site outside the long arm of US authorities.
