EchoBeirut.com is reporting that the website of Al-Akhbar newspaper has been hacked. Tried it myself and I can confirm that when you try accessing it, you are redirected to what appears to be a Saudi website:
Rough Translation of EchoBeirut.com report:
The Hezbollah-backed newspaper Al-Akhbar’s website experienced a cyber-attack where visitors were redirected to; there has been no comment from the newspaper. Some have questioned the hack and considered it a failed attempt by the paper to suggest the existence of a Saudi conspiracy. It is also noted that the National News Agency did not carry any news from Al-Akhbar newspaper today.
Update – December 9, 2010: Al Akhbar comments stating attacks correspond with Wikileaks release:
Al-Akhbar newspaper has been hit by a cyber attack since publishing cables from whistleblower WikiLeaks.
“We have been the victim of a cyber attack targeting the paper’s internal information system for the past few days,” a member of al-Akhbar’s editorial team, Elie Chalhoub, said.
Al-Akhbar’s cooperation with WikiLeaks “may well be the principal reason for the attack,” he said.
