Hackers obliterate Egypt central bank website

Computer hackers have obliterated the website of the Egyptian central bank. The cyber attack was launched on the morning of Feb. 2, Ayman el-Sayed, the central bank's webmaster, said. "We are now implementing security measures to avoid this happening in the future," he said. The website (www.cbe.org.eg) - which usually features billowing Egyptian flags and an old, sepia photograph of the bank - is now all in black, with red text in Portuguese including several Brazilian Internet addresses."Ha
