MI6 Hackers Replaced Bombs with Cakes
The hackers inserted a cake recipe to replace bomb-making instructions in an Al Qaida magazine.
According to a report in The Guardian, when MI6 hacked the servers on an online Al Qaida magazine last year, it replaced bomb-making instructions with a cake recipe.
"The magazine in question was the first edition of a 70-page English language lifestyle magazine for jihadis called 'Inspire,'" The H Security reports. "The contents list reads like a parody, but UK and US security services believe that it is genuine."
"The article 'Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom' by 'The AQ Chef' gave detailed instructions for constructing a pipe bomb, fuse and timer," the article states. "The magazine was hacked about a year ago by MI6."
