Meanwhile, Over At Jihad Watch

Major problems, says Robert Spencer:
I really don't have all that much to report, but I wanted to let you know I'm working on it. The situation is very much the same: the comments feature is still not working, it is still very difficult to post articles at all, and other features of the site are non-functional..

Several tech experts are working on the problem. Some malicious code has been found, which makes it likely that the site was hacked, although this hacking was not a conventional one: no eradication of the main page and its replacement by a taunting message, as is the usual practice. In fact, the malicious code is apparently (if I understand the explanation correctly, which is chancy at best, since I'm no techie) slow-acting, unfolding over time. We are looking into how it got there, and who planted it.

In any case, all I can say now is that we're working on it and will have the site fully operational as soon as possible. This kind of action just shows yet again how desperately insecure and thuggish the enemies of freedom are -- they can't refute us, so they try to shut us down. And how many Leftist and Islamic supremacist sites do you ever hear about getting hacked?

Finally, thank you all very much for your many, many emails of concern and support.

I wonder is it's 'gov stuxnet' related and able to transmit the 'virus' to visitors or/and commenters.
That much knowhow to take out a site aint 'normal' this could be a bigger thing.

Will,
The same thought crossed my mind.

Also, recently Mr. Spencer had a run in with the diocese in Worcester, Massachusetts.

Clue? After that particular post, Jihad Watch was in even worse shape.

Been avoiding JihadWatch over the past month but clicked on it accidentally on Google Reader. Immediately the HDD went into overdrive...

An attempt to grab passwords and personal information of "counterjihadis"?
