The Daily Awesome: Hackers vs Terrorist Scum

I love hackers, used to be one of them in my youth (no good at it now).  Most hackers are good, decent people who simply exploit weaknesses in a harmless manner to improve security.  There is, of course, the dark side.

Hackers are also patriots!

A popular jihadist Internet forum has been knocked off the Internet, and counterterrorism experts say it appears it was hacked.

Cybersecurity analysts say the al-Shamukh forum appears to have been taken down by a fairly sophisticated cyberattack that hit not only the website, but the server.

Perhaps it was a government op to take the site down, but I prefer to think otherwise.  Well done in either case.
