An unexpected move from UK’s intelligence agency MI6 to fight terrorism used cupcakes against an al Qaeda recruitment and training website.
The agency hackers replaced bomb recipes with cake recipes in what they called “Operation Cupcake.” Are they trying get terrorists diabetic? What would Bin Laden have to say about this?
“When followers tried to download the 67-page colour magazine, instead of instructions about how to “Make a bomb in the Kitchen of your Mom” by “The AQ Chef” they were greeted with garbled computer code.
The code, which had been inserted into the original magazine by the British intelligence hackers, was actually a web page of recipes for “The Best Cupcakes in America” published by the Ellen DeGeneres chat show.
Written by Dulcy Israel and produced by Main Street Cupcakes in Hudson, Ohio, it said “the little cupcake is big again” adding: “Self-contained and satisfying, it summons memories of childhood even as it’s updated for today’s sweet-toothed hipsters.” – The Telegraph
