Attack of the cupcakes

Proving yet again that British Intelligence have the coolest spies in the world, the Daily Telegraph in London reports that MI6 and GCHQ have hacked into an al-Qaeda web site, and replaced instructions on how to build a bomb with a recipe for cupcakes.

If I put something like that in a book, people would tell me to take it out because it was too unbelievable. The truth is, reality is frequently stranger than fiction, but the sad fact is that fiction has to be believable, whereas reality operates under no such restriction.

Top marks for the cutest cyber attack in history.
