Tampa web-hosting firm removes jihadist website

Tampa,Florida ,USA By Howard Altman of The Tampa Tribune

A Tampa Web-hosting company has taken down a Web site used by al-Qaida for communicating in secret and hiding files from investigators.

"Mujahideen Secrets 2 is designed to allow mujahedeen encrypted communication online using elaborate algorithms and symmetrical and asymmetrical encryption keys," said Eli Alshech, director of the Jihad and Terrorism Studies Project for the Middle East Media Research Institute, a think tank based in Washington.

The Web site often used by al-Qaida is of great concern, according to A. Aaron Weisburd, who runs the Internet Haganah, a Web site dedicated to hunting and disrupting jihadi Internet communications.

The site was registered on January 22, 2006, by a man named Peterson Hoffman in Amman, Jordan.

Another version, with a different Web address, is being hosted by a company in Phoenix, he said.


Maybe we should give them comfort and protection the same way we do some elder and elder financial abusers .
