Fluffi Bunni's most famous exploit was the mass DNS hack of NetNames, a domain name registrar, in September 2001. This enabled the group to deface thousands of web sites with the message:

"Fluffi Bunni goes Jihad"

"If you want to see the internet again, give us Mr Bin Laden and $5 million in a brown paper bag. Love Fluffi B."

The note was accompanied by a picture of a small fluffy bunny sat a PC screen with what appears to be an electric razor, a CD, an empty pint glass and some sunglasses in the background.

And a 530-word political statement characterised by the FBI at the time as "anti-American". Other prominent victims of Fluffi Bunni include security sites Attrition.org and SecurityFocus. ®
