London, UK - 24 March 2003, 16:30 GMT - Thousands of eCommerce servers
with credit card databases and customer addresses have been attacked by anti-war
and pro-Islamic hackers since 19th March. This is proving to be a useful lever
for criminal syndicates with a global reach, who are engaged in routine surveillance
and reconnaissance activities on Internet credit card sales points as well
as susceptible individuals and small groups within financial services.
