Al-Qaida Online Magazine Defaced by UK Intelligence


British intelligence officials reportedly vandalized an issue of Inspire, the English-language online magazine of al-Qaida, according to a Washington Post article. The Post reports that "British government cyber-warriors" corrupted Inspire's first issue, on June 30, 2010, changing pages 4 through 67 to an unreadable mess of illegible code, or "binary garbage," as Mikko Hypponen wrote in a blog for the security firm F-Secure. The pages of the jihadist publication were supposed to include an article on how to "Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom" as well as an interview with Sheik Abu Basir al-Wahishi, a former aide to Osama bin Laden. It took nearly two weeks for al-Qaida to post a corrected version following the British intelligence hack, the Post said. News of the British government's covert cyberoperation comes amid strategizing from the White House and the Pentagon about what constitutes cyberwar, what cyberweapons are allowable, and how the U.S. military is to respond to online threats from foreign countries.
