MI-6 Hacked Al Queda Bomb Making Site ... - June 9, 2011, 02:17 AM

... replaced bomb recipe with cupcake recipe. Awesome! Well played, Mr. Bond.

The British goverment’s Secrect Intelligence Service department called MI6 has carried out a rather amusing, but also very important website hack.
The terrorist organization al-Qaeda has a number of ways to get new recruits, or teach existing members how to make bombs, and generally cause upset and violence in whatever area of the world they operate. One such information point is a new English-language online magazine that had information on how to make bombs using common househols items in your kitchen.
Anyone reading the instructions could make an effective homemade bomb, and MI6 weren’t about to let that happen. So rather than just removing the information from the website, they instead decided to replace it.

The document is entitled “Make a bomb in the Kitchen of your Mom” and was signed as written by “The AQ Chef”. MI6 allowed the recipe book to remain in place, but instead of bomb making instructions it now tells you how to make cupcakes. More specifically, it’s “The Best Cupcakes in America” written by Ellen DeGeneres.
Taking such action potentially has a much greater impact than just removing the document. For one it shows al-Qaeda that their network is far from secure. At the same time it will cause a bit of confusion throughout the group and hopefully make any potential new lone-wolf recruits think the whole thing is a joke, therefore discrediting the terrorist group to some extent.
al-Qaeda has reissued the magazine with the original content, but MI6 will continue to try and replace the content in the hope of creating some great cooks instead of bomb makers.
