Egypt: Free Kareem Site Hacked

“Unfortunately, someone gained access to our FTP, databases, and host panel and managed to take down all our websites, including this one. Everything was affected: files, plugins, backups, posts. Lalith our webmaster is still in the process of recovering our data. Please be patient with us if you note any problems with the site; we are aware of the issues and we are working on fixing it,” is the announcement you will find today at the Free Kareem site, put up by volunteers to pressure Egypt to release blogger Kareem Nabil Sulaiman, who has been sentenced to four years in prison for articles he wrote online.
