A California-based international ebusiness web portal hacked on Wednesday by a Pakistani hacker, has handed over its file on the attack to FBI investigators.
Worldtradeservices.com, founded by ex-executives of the Central Californian World Trade Centre, was defaced Wednesday by hacker 'Doctor Nuker', a Bin Laden apologist who claims to be the founder of the Pakistan Hackerz Club.
Doctor Nuker, who condemned last week's attacks as a "horrible and hideous act" and anathema to Islam, also ranted against the US's track record in the Middle East and Kashmir.
Part of the defacement said the CIA had the most to gain by last week's attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York, as they legitimise long-standing US efforts to hunt down Osama Bin Laden, the prime suspect for the terrorist attacks.
The hacker also said: "The attack is nothing to with muslims or Osama-bin-Laden. If you want to compare what Israel has done against the Palestinians, it is 10 times worse than what they Muslim terrorists, only if they are behind it, have done to the US now."
In an email, Gary Snyder, chief executive at World Trade Services and former executive director of the Central Californian World Trade Centre, told vnunet.comthat the matter was now in the FBI's hands.
Snyder said: "We have in fact turned the information we have available about being hacked over to the FBI, which has requested all such information."
Earlier this week, the FBI warned cyber-vigilantes against attacking muslim websites, warning that they would face jail sentences of up to five years if linked to politically-motivated web attacks.
