Hackers have temporarily shut down Al Qaeda's online distribution of videos and statements.
Evan Kohlmann, of Flashpoint Global Partners reported that The attack happened within the past few days and was "well coordinated and involved the use of an unusual cocktail of relatively sophisticated techniques." Kohlmann added that it could be several days before the network is up and running again.
As an aside: Earlier this month, British newspapers reported that the UK government hacked an English-language Al Qaeda site and replaced bomb making instructions with cupcake recipes.
