[url]http://www.blackcode.com/news/view.php?id=96[/url] A world-reknowned hacker-turned-playboy, German businessman Kim Schmitz, has claimed that a group of hackers convened by himself has hacked a Sudanese bank and stolen details of accounts held by suspected terrorist Osama bin Laden and his organisation, Al-Qaeda. In an interview with the online edition of the Washington Post, Schmitz (27), who served a jail sentence for hacking as a teen and subsequently made millions from his data security business, said that the information the hackers had uncovered had been sent to the FBI. Soon after the terrorist attacks in the US Schmitz posted a $10-million reward on his web site for information leading to the arrest of bin Laden. He also posted messages on his site offering his hacking expertise in the global war on terrorism.

"I received plenty of emails from hackers around the world offering their services," he told Newsbytes.com. From these emails he founded a group of more than 20 hackers which he called YIHAT - Young Intelligent Hackers Against Terror. The acronym is in obvious reference to the Islamic Jihad, which is a holy war. Schmitz says he did not participate in the hacking of the AlShamal Islamic Bank in Sudan, but that those who did would prefer to remain anonymous. "I am the spokesperson of the group," he said. "They don't want to be involved with the press. What they do is illegal, unless we find a government that legalises our activities." Schmitz would not reveal the details of what the hackers had discovered, and the FBI declined to comment on whether they had received the said information. According to Schmitz a Sudanese banker contacted him via email last Friday to inform him that bin Laden and Al Qaeda had accounts at AlShamal Islamic Bank. Schmitz passed the information on to his group and a team of UK-based hackers broke into the intranet of the bank by exploiting a vulnerability in the security firewall. The hackers were given "Superuser" status after cracking the firewall, and were able to garner eight valid user ID's to browse the network. They used these to gain entrance to the accounts, and from there they collected the information, which they sent to the FBI. Following the hack Scmitz sent an email to the bank webmaster, which read as follows: "dear webmaster of sudans shamalbank, "your bank has been hacked. information regarding Al Qaeda's and bin Ladens accounts have been captured. all information reached the US authorities. thanks for using products from checkpoint (firewall1). "have a nice day, Kim "Kimble" Schmitz, Founder of "Young Intelligent Hackers Against Terror" YIHAT". The "checkpoint" product that Schmitz was referring to in his email was the firewall1 security software used by the bank to protect its data.
