Jittery yanks warn of Jihadist internet threat

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

An internet "Jihadist" has posted a message to an Internet chat room that suggests people who are angry about the US prison camp in Guantanamo Bay should retaliate with cyber-security attacks on its stock market and banking web sites in the run up to Christmas.

The Associated Press news wire reported that the warning was issued as a routine notice of US Computer Emergency Readiness Team (CERT). But a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security, which houses CERT, played it down.

He said the threat was unconfirmed and posed no immediate danger. It was merely a "routine" alert prompted by an "abundance of caution".
