A hacker going by the name of Muslim Leets has hacked and defaced several websites with calls for Jihad, an Islamic term referring to the religious duty of Muslims to maintain and spread the religion, also used today by terrorist groups to justify their crimes.
The American Human Rights Council (AHRC) was one of the many organizations affected by this incident. Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director, has acknowledged the hack on the organization’s official website.
In an interview with Detroit News, Novocam, the hosting provider for AHRC told media that the hackers got access from the AHRC website to the underlying server and defaced 48 other websites.
Various types of businesses were affected, ranging from doctors to real estate companies. The message, written in very poor English, is embedded at the bottom of this article.
The hacker also used an alternative name to MuslimLeets, which is Muj4hida. There is a Zone-H profile for this hacker’s name, which contains a list of 63 websites defaced with the same message between September 14 and 16.
Among the defaced websites there are also multiple domains belonging to Novocam, and it appears that more than one server was affected. The full defacement message is below, in both text and image format.
