A protest group that claimed responsibility for a wave of digital attacks on big U.S. banks in the fall — including Pittsburgh-based PNC Bank — apparently has PNC in its crosshairs again.
The al-Qassam Cyber Fighters said in an Internet posting that the group plans a second round of attacks this week on PNC and four other banks — JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, U.S. Bank and SunTrust.
A spokeswoman for PNC was not immediately available for comment. In September, PNC’s online banking operations were disrupted for a couple of days by the so-called denial of service attacks, which flood websites with communications requests.
In the latest phase, “the wideness and the number of attacks will increase explicitly,” the protest group said in a message posted on a website called Pastebin.
The group has said the attacks would continue until a YouTube video insulting the Islamic prophet Muhammad was removed from the Internet.
All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.

"We are looking forward to the day when moderate Muslims will be able to take control of their governments, their educational systems, and their law and order, so the Western world could resume mutual constructive relations based on friendship and respect. The whole world is looking forward to that day and praying for a peaceful Middle East. The ball is now in the Muslim world's court."

"An Islamic regime must be serious in every field," explained Ayatollah Khomeini. "There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humour in Islam. There is no fun in Islam."
"I want to be very, very clear, however: I understand and agree with the analysis of the problem. There is an imminent threat. It manifested itself on 9/11. It's real and grave. It is as serious a threat as Stalinism and National Socialism were. Let's not pretend it isn't." ~~~~~Bono~~~~~
