Hi,

Yeah, I hear what your saying, and I was wondering whether or not I should
even have posted it up. I'm not too fond of the terroriste du jour either.

But ultimately, it is a RealCase of a security breach. I don't consider a
hacker as just a person who exploits security, and yes, any script kiddie
can run Metasploit and pwn an unpatched Win2k server running IIS 5.5, but
the point is, it was a security breach, and the place got owned for a bit.

Personally, I don't care who it is, if someone even tries to get close to my
systems, some sort of security alert will go off. Now, as the case may be,
since this is a "terrorist orgainization", I don't want the equipment I am
in charge of, being a part of a fight that a group of people feel should be
used to further their cause without expressed permission. I don't want the
systems I'm in charge of being used for anything besides their intended
purposes, period.

So whether this is propaganda or not, will be left for the reader to decide
for themselves. But, to reiterate I think this is a real case of a security
breach that should be looked at from a proactive security perspective. And
measures should always be in place to deal with these kinds of issues with
respect to your systems.

Thanks,

-Daniel
