HARARE -- A new "cyber war" has been declared against Zimbabwe's 
beleaguered white farmers after hackers attacked and disabled the 
Commercial Farmers Union (CFU) website this week.

A hacker, calling himself Shadow D3v1L, swooped on the CFU on Monday, 
shutting down the website which had become a useful communication tool 
between the union and its members.

"The attack took place on Monday after the hackers managed to get 
through the union's computer security system," a CFU official told The 
Zimbabwean.

The attack disabled the website, inserting words such as 
"Sas-Terrorist", "Jerusalem Hacker" and "Crack-Man" on the home page.

fighting President Robert Mugabe's government in court over his 
controversial land reform programme.
