Author: JT Smith

BBC: "The FBI has warned of an increase in hacking attacks following last
week's suicide hijacking events in the US.

The cyber attacks were likely to be carried out by "self-described
patriot hackers, targeted at those perceived to be responsible for
the terrorist attacks", said the FBI's National Infrastructure
Protection Center (NIPC).

Malicious hackers have already defaced some websites, including
that of Afghanistan's ruling Taleban movement."
