Al Shabaab Hacks The Star Newspaper Website-Mohammed Ali in The Mix
A message on the screen seemed to send a warning to other media houses, but at the same time congratulated Jicho Pevu’s Mohammed Ali for “Recruiting more mujahedeen and fighting the Kuffar and apostate government of Kenya.”
Mohammed Ali has often been seen as an Al Shabaab sympathiser, but this is the first time the Al Shabaab or their associates/sympathisers have named him.
He did not comment on the issue but Dennis Onsarigo had this to say.
The site has since been restored.
If indeed the Al Shabaab are behind yesterday’s cyber attack, then this may signal changing tactics. They are yet to claim responsibility through their normal channels, and this may as well be the work of an idle university student wanting to make a mark.
