SAUDI WOMAN ON A MISSION
Disables anti-Islam Websites
Dammam, Aug 18: An Alkhobar woman studying in the United States is taking credit for destroying 23 Danish websites that were anti-Islam, Al-Madinah newspaper reported on Thursday.
Nouf Rashid told the Arabic newspaper she was hacking into Danish websites having references to cartoons along with other sites that had questionable content in her view.
She said she had also destroyed a number of pornographic sites and hacked into the computer systems of young men who had tried to blackmail girls by threatening to publish their private photos. She gained expertise in the field out of a desire to learn new things in the IT field.
Nouf said she entered the hacking world to save a girl who was being blackmailed by a young man who wanted to marry her and had obtained a private photo of her. The victim’s friend had requested Nouf to look for a hacker in the US to save her from the man.
“In fact, I contacted some of my hacker friends at university and I learned from them the art of hacking,” she said.
“After this, I took the opportunity to save many women from youths who tried to blackmail them using their pictures. By the grace of Allah I was able to hack into their systems and erase most of their photos.”
Nouf said she had hacked into some of the Danish websites and shut them down. “I also sent messages and articles about Islam and the Prophet to those who managed those sites,” she pointed out.
Nouf urged girls to be cautious when using the Internet and not to open any suspicious e-mails. “We should take adequate protective measures. When doing computer maintenance, we should approach companies and individuals whom they can trust, because some workers in maintenance centers plant viruses that can spy on their clients,” she said.
According to Western media sources, more than 900 Danish websites have been hacked by groups in many countries along with individual hackers recently.
The BBC reported that the attacks typically replace home pages with pro-Islam messages and condemn the publication of the blasphemous images.
“We have never seen so many defacements that are politically targeted in such a short time,” Roberto Preatoni of the Internet monitoring group Zone H told BBC. He noted that most of the interference involves defacement of the website although some of the hackers have threatened the Danish people with revenge. ARAB NEWS
