'Electronic Jihad' fails to threaten, again

A Web site's call for a massive religious-fueled denial-of-service attack -- an "Electronic Jihad" -- failed to create even a blip of activity on Sunday.

Two weeks ago, a group sympathetic to the goals of militant Muslims reportedly called for support in attacking financial Web sites and services on Sunday, November 11, but the day came and went with no noticeable traffic spikes, security experts stated. Antivirus firm F-Secure and the Internet Storm Center, a network monitoring group, both reported that their analysis failed to detect any attack.

"Well, so far we haven't seen any activity," said Mikko Hyppönen, director of research for F-Secure, said on the company's blog. "And we're not holding our breath either."

A past call for Islamic militant supporters to turn their fervor into service-denying packets also failed in 2004. While many policy makers have spoken about the threat of cyberterrorism, security experts typically discount the Internet as a likely terror target.

"I know that this is politically incorrect, but the odds of a terrorist group 'terrorizing' the Internet with cyber bullets and e-bombs are about as small as the odds of the Morse Code coming back as a primary means of communication," said Marcus Sachs, director of the ISC, which is owned by the SANS Institute. "It's not zero, but it's also not much more than zero."
