 Islamic Messages Deface Hundreds Of Danish Sites


Muslim protests over editorial cartoons originally published by a Danish newspaper have spilled onto the Internet and resulted in defacements of hundreds of Danish Web sites, a security company said Tuesday.

According to Helsinki-based F-Secure, nearly 600 Danish sites have been defaced with anti-Dane and pro-Muslim messages in the past week, the latest fallout in the uproar over cartoons that include one depicting Mohammed with a bomb for a turban.

The defacements included warnings of suicide bombings, Arabic-language messages sprawled across home pages, and threats such as "die plez."

Politically motivated Web attacks are infrequent, though certainly not unknown. Among the most notable was a month-long defacement dustup in 2001 between Chinese and American hackers after a U.S. spy plane was forced down by Chinese fighters, and a 2003 virus exchange between Pakistan and India as border tensions escalated between those countries.
