The website of artist Lars Vilks was hacked on Wednesday, just a day
after the 53-year-old was attacked as he gave a lecture at Uppsala
Instead of gaining access to the artist's controversial drawing of the
Muslim prophet Muhammad as a dog, which sparked outrage in parts of the
Islamic world after its publication in Swedish newspapers in 2007,
visitors to Vilks.net were greeted by a message from a hacker with the
signature Al Qatari.
An aggressive greeting charging the artist with "still talking about the
Prophet Muhammad," is followed by a warning that the site will remain a
"We really never stop hacking your site and I will show you how can I
hacking your computer."
Lars Vilks was seemingly unperturbed by the cyber attack.
"I'm in touch with my webmaster, so I hope it will be fixed soon. But in
any case, this is better than starting fights at academic lectures,"
Vilks told news agency TT.
