MI6 Turns Al Qaeda Bomb Makers Into Cupcake Bakers
British spy hackers have temporarily turned an Al Qaeda propaganda magazine into a harmless vector for cupcake recipes:
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.
It said: "The little cupcake is big again. Self-contained and satisfying, it summons memories of childhood even as it's updated for today's sweet-toothed hipsters."
