Al-Qaida's Top-tier Communications Forum Restored After Apparent Hack

It would seem Al-Qaida's top-tier communications forum, al-Shamukh, has been restored. It has been unavailable for just about a week, due to a suspected government-based hack.

Evan Kohlmann, of Flashpoint Global Partners, posted the following tweets (@IntelTweet) today....!/IntelTweet/status/87949364466696192

A message posted by Shamukh administrators boasted that the forum has been restored "despite the determination and cunning of our enemies."

I would strongly discourage curious readers from searching or accessing these forums, however for those interested in these very serious Jihadi forums, I would suggest checking out Internet-Haganah. This blog monitors and tracks activity on these top forums and has been on my CT related RSS feeds for many years.
