    A Pakistani hacking group has defaced a Web server operated by the
    U.S.  government and threatened to hit American and British military
    sites unless its demands are met.
    A Web server operated by the National Oceanic & Atmospheric
    Administration (NOAA) was attacked this morning by a group known as
    GForce Pakistan, according to records at Alldas, a Web site defacement
    The attackers replaced the site's homepage with their own, which bore
    the title "GForce Strikes Back" and contained a 350-word text message.
    The message said the group would target "major US military and major
    British Web sites" in coming days and jeopardize their internal
    GForce claimed to have "some very high confidential US data" that it
    would hand over to officials of Al Qaeda unless the U.S. met several
    demands.  The group's confusing ultimatum included the removal of U.S.
    troops from Saudi Arabia, the cessation of bombing in Afghanistan, and
    the production of "evidence," among other demands.
