The Turkish-Swedish hacking war....

This all stems from the cartoons of Muhammed...
An ongoing struggle between Turkish and Swedish hackers gathered renewed force this week as websites belonging to Linköping Cathedral and Gothenburg Council were both defaced.

Earlier this month, attacks on Swedish web hosts by Turkish hackers led to difficulties for an estimated 5,000 websites. Swedish hackers then retaliated by stealing a database containing thousands of user names and passwords from a Turkish online forum.

The most recent attacks would seem to suggest that Turkish hackers are readying themselves for a protracted hacking war. With rumours of revenge already circulating on Swedish internet forums, Stefan B Grinneby, head of the Swedish IT Incident Centre (SITIC), is calling on domestic hackers to exercise restraint.
