Cyber Skirmish Website Death Toll: Us 1, Hizbollah 6
Lets see, it all started yesterday when Network Solutions took Down Geert Wilder's Fitna website due to complaints about a short film critical of Islam that was due to be hosted there. The move resulted in a flurry of complaints to Network Solutions about removing the site.
A commenter at Jawa noted that Network Solutions was providing services to Hizballah, a specially designated terrorist group. They were providing DNS services. Domain name services are how your computer finds the IP address of the server where a website is located. It is unlawful for US companies to provide services to specially designated terrorist entities like Hizbollah.
Soon the complaints to Network Solutions about Hizbollah's websites resulted in Network Solutions suspending DNS services to Hizbollah.org
hizbollah.org = [ ]
Which resulted in great joy over at Report on Arrakis.
The following URLs were also PWNED as of this posting!
In this case, the outcry against Geert Wilder's film has backfired. But why stop there. The Jawa Report reported that Many US companies are doing business with Hizbollah here. Updated Hosting info below the fold. Lets rack up a few more Hizbollah sites while were at it.
I feel your anger! It gives you focus! Makes You stronger!
Update: More here at Creeping Sharia. Who was actually on the Hizbollah/Network Solutions connection on Saturday.
