Jewish newspaper’s Web site hacked
The Web site of Britain’s major Jewish newspaper was the victim of an online attack.
Hackers of the Jewish Chronicle’s site Sunday replaced graphics on the homepage with a Palestinian flag and a message that read “Hacked by Palestinian Mujaheeds.”
A message posted in both English and Turkish quotes from the Koran and displays anti-Semitic attacks against Jews.
The London-based site was suspended for several hours for repairs by technicians who also searched for a possible firewall breach. The site became operational again Monday morning.
