Hacker attacks Boulder Jewish Web sites


(JTA) — A hacker attacked Jewish Web sites in Boulder, Colo., posting anti-Semitic messages.

The Web sites of two Boulder synagogues, Bonai Shalom and Har HaShem, were defaced Saturday. The messages compared the Jewish community to a terrorist organization, a company that maintains the Web sites told the Denver Post.

According to the report, the Web site of the Boulder Rabbinic Council also was attacked.

The hacker called himself Waja (Adi Noor). It took about five hours to restore the sites.

"This is not all that different from painting a swastika on the wall of a building," Jeff Finkelstein, who maintains the sites, told the Denver Post. He said he is trying to trace the hacker.
