FOX NEWS....A popular jihadist Internet forum has been knocked off the Internet, and counterterrorism experts say it appears it was hacked. Cybersecurity analysts say the al-Shamukh forum appears to have been taken down by a fairly sophisticated cyberattack that hit not only the website, but the server -- which is the main computer that enables people to access the site over the Internet.
"The al-Shamukh website had become the most trusted and exclusive haunt for e-jihadists," said Jarret Brachman, a terrorism expert who has spent a decade monitoring Al Qaeda's media operations and advises the U.S. government. "If it doesn't come back up soon, the forum's registered members will start migrating to the half a dozen other main forums, all of whom are probably chomping at the bit to replace Shamukh as the pre-eminent Al Qaeda forum." The Defense Department said late Wednesday that it was aware of reports that Al Qaeda's Internet operations had been disrupted, but could not comment on the specific incident.
NBC NEWS..Hackers Shut Down Al Qaeda’s Online Communications Shumukh Al-Islam Forum, Go to Hell Al-Qaeda You Set Up Websites And I knock Them Down.
In Your Face Al-Qaeda, Yeah It Was Me That Persuaded GoDaddy.com To Shut Down Your Web Forum Shumukh al-Islam, LOL.
WASHINGTON — Computer hackers shut down al-Qaida’s ability to communicate its messages to the world through the Internet, interrupting the group’s flow of videos and communiqués. Al-Qaida’s online communications have been temporarily crippled, and it does not have a single trusted distribution channel available on the Internet.
The Al-Qaeda Web Forum Shumukh al-Islam is no more, I got GoDaddy.com to shut down the Al-Qaeda website for good, LOL. GoDaddy.Com Shuts Down Al-Qaeda Website Shumukh Al-Islam Jihadi Forum www.shamikh1.net/vb, thanks GoDaddy.com.
The al-Qaeda website Shumukh Al-Islam Jihadi Forum www.shamikh1.net/vb needs to be banned from any further registration in the USA.
AL-QAEDA with a focus only on the countries most hostile like America, Britain and France posted a threat on a closed Internet forum shamikh1.info http://shamikh1.info/vb/showthread.php?t=113057 and translated by the Investigative Project on Terrorism and subsequently confirmed by an independent translator, called for jihadists and sympathizers to “target and kill 40 prominent Americans at their homes in the U.S.”
The authors of the post have also generously provided photographs of twenty-six of those 40 figures, the better to assist eager jihadists (and jihadist wannabes) in identifying their enemies. The Al-Qaeda website has been terminated by the USA web hosting company WhoisGuard after I contacted them on June 27th, 2011, see link click here.
The Shumukh al-Islam web forum was back up and very active again in mid June, the website http://shamikh1.info/vb/showthread.php?t=113057 was hosted in the USA by WhoisGuard at 8939 S. Sepulveda Blvd, Westchester, CA 90045, Ph. 661-310-2107.
At a time when it is most important for these Al-Qaeda scumbags to communicate with one another to plot their next terror attack in the USA their website and it’s forum pages at http://www.shamikh1.net/vb/ had been allowed to operate openly in Scottsdale Arizona USA, no more.
Go to hell Al-Qaeda you set up the websites and I will knock them down.
