Hackers Targetting Jazeera Website

An unidentified organisation based abroad has been attempting to hack Qatar’s first news portal, Al Jazeera Net (AJN), over the last few days, its Chief Editor Adulaziz Al Mahmoud, said yesterday. The website plans to introduce four new links offering a variety of information to surfers, he added. AJN is a portal hosted by Qatar’s internationally reputed satellite TV station, the Al Jazeera Channel (JSC).

The website, according to the official, receives some 10 to 13 million hits daily, of which some 45 per cent are accounted by Internet users in the US and Europe.
