Saudi Owned Television News Website Attacked

The defacement of Al Arabiya's website, a Dubai based, Saudi-owned television station, was in apparent retaliation for recent attacks on Shiite websites:

The number of web site defacements continues to escalate between opposing Sunni and Shiite groups:
"Last month, prominent Sunni religious commentator Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi charged that Shiites are "invading" Sunni societies. Also, a tit-for-tat cyber war disabled 900 websites, belonging to both sects, as Shiite and Sunni hackers infiltrated religious websites and uploaded their own messages."
