Computer hackers have disrupted al Qaeda’s ability to communicate via internet by interrupting the flow of videos and messages of the outfit, an anti terror expert said. The attack was reportedly carried out by unknown hackers in the past few days. “Al Qaeda’s online communications have been temporarily crippled, and it does not have a single trusted distribution channel available on the internet,” Evan Kohlmann of Flashpoint Global Partners, which monitors the outfit’s communication, was quoted as saying by the NBC News.
It was “well coordinated and involved the use of an unusual cocktail of relatively sophisticated techniques,” Kohlmann said.
