NRWA Website Hacked

Clients or resume writers trying to find the NRWA website on Friday, Nov. 9 were greeted by a strange message, purportedly from a group with links to Al-Queda. As late as Saturday evening, even Google was displaying the hacked version of the site in its cached files.

According to NRWA President Kathy Sweeney, the message was religious in nature, claiming that "God would hate (the U.S.)" and asked God to "curse (the United States)."

The hacking, which was not limited only to the sites hosted by the same company that hosts the NRWA's site, may have been part of a "Cyber-Jihad" plan. A military website warned of mass denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, originally believed to launch on Nov. 11.
