Taleban can't hack - UK govt

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "September 11 does have some implications for Internet security, but these risks should be put in
context.
Cummings told an audience at a presentation at the Compsec security conference in London this
morning that post-September 11 there was a heightened risk of denial of service attacks on UK
Government web sites.

This risk comes from sympathisers of the Taleban cause or "some pretty high level groups supporting
terrorism" but not from the Taleban itself."
