Blog Attacked Via Facebook Group For Posting 'Blow Up The Koran'

March 12, 2012 - The counterjihad website Infidels United was temporarily brought down today by a mysterious group on Facebook. 

That group orchestrated a dedicated denial of of service (DDOS) attack by inviting others to a Facebook event called "DDOS"  The site was brought back online this evening just past 9:00 PM CDT, but the attacks continue.

A DDOS is "is an attempt to make a computer or network resource unavailable to its intended users. Although the means to carry out, motives for, and targets of a DoS attack may vary, it generally consists of the concerted efforts of a person, or multiple people to prevent an Internet site or service from functioning efficiently or at all, temporarily or indefinitely."

"Leisture Man Ops" is the group or individual responsible for the DDOS. (No, that's not my mispelling: The fool can't even spell "Leisure" correctly.)

The reason for the attack is not clear, but is probably connected to the fact that Infidels United posted "Blow Up The Koran" on March 5.

Infidels United tells Chicago News Bench that the DDOS attacks have been "unceasing" since the FB event "DDOS" was posted on March 6th.

"Leisture Man Ops" seems to be Malaysian. Many of the phrases uses at their Facebook pages are in the Malay language.

The phrase "teruskan attack" is used a number of times, and "teruskan" means, roughly, "keep trying" or "don't stop" in Malay, which makes sense in this context for a persistent denial of service attack on a website.

"I have reported it to Facebook and the FBI via," said the owner of Infidels United, "and nobody seems to give a crap!"

He wonders, as do we all, why Facebook does not police this kind of activity more closely.
