The hacker group that claims to have found Osama bin Laden's financial accounts has 
this week launched
its public face.

Founded on 15 September in reaction to the terrorist attacks on the US, YIHAT (Young 
Intelligent Hackers Against Terror) claims to have kicked off a cyber-war against 

Now vnunet can exclusively reveal that the organisation has launched a public 
information and recruitment site at http://www.Kill.net .

The name was chosen "because our mission is to kill the money sources of terror," said 
Kim "kimble" Schmitz, spokesman for the group and convicted Pentagon and NASA hacker.

"Every burned terror dollar is rescuing lives," he said.

"YIHAT has a face now. Everybody on the net can join us and do his part of 
anti-terror-work," added Schmitz.

The site appears to be set up as an information trading forum and recruitment site.

YIHAT claims to have 31 hacking professionals in nine different countries, including 
the UK, and is on the lookout for skilled recruits.

Of course, you can also invest in the fund to support YIHAT, which already has five 
investors including
multi-millionaire Schmitz.

"YIHAT dedicates its knowledge of data (in) security to the fight against terrorism. 
The best hackers on this planet are united and form a strong intellectual army," reads 
the site's blurb.

But many of these claims are insupportable, possibly given the legal grey areas which 
these hackers exploit in their activities.

Earlier this month UK members of YIHAT are said to have broken into the AlShamal 
Islamic bank and captured transaction data from bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Apparently the 
info was passed on to the FBI, which has been
unable to comment on the matter.

Schmitz and YIHAT are apparently "searching for a government that allows a network of 
skilled computer hackers to fight terrorism through the online world."
