Remove bomb; replace with cupcake

Informational high-tech agents (a.k.a. “hackers”) working for British intelligence broke into an al-Qaeda website and replaced one of the site’s documents.

When end users tried to download a 67-page instruction guide entitled “Make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom”, they instead got a page of – wait for it – cupcake recipes.

“It’s a good thing,” as Martha Stewart would say, since cupcakes tend to be less lethal than bombs.

And who said informational workers don’t kick ass?

Terrorists. I hate those guys.
