Almost 1,000 Danish websites have been defaced by
Islamic hackers protesting about controversial cartoons mocking the
Prophet Muhammad.

The attacks typically replace home pages with pro-Islam messages and condemn the publication of the images.

Hack attack monitoring group Zone-H said the defacements were done both by hacker groups and individuals.

Zone-H said some hackers left moderate messages but many called for a violent response to the cartoons’ publication.
