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 archive. 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 security. 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.
