"It took only a few weeks to plan the cyberattack—and a few more to abandon the world of ethical hacking for the less noble sort. But they would do anything for the Nile, the four young Egyptians agreed.

With that, the group calling themselves the Cyber_Horus Group in late June hacked more than a dozen Ethiopian government sites, replacing each page with their own creation: an image of a skeleton pharaoh, clutching a scythe in one hand and a scimitar in the other. "If the river's level drops, let all the Pharaoh's soldiers hurry," warned a message underneath. "Prepare the Ethiopian people for the wrath of the Pharaohs.".."

A few over enthusiastic hackers is hardly a first step to an actual war.

Water is one of those really important comedies, that you just can't live without in a desert.

Ah yes, everyone needs a good laugh when living in the desert.

Pharaohs and cyber war, which game are we playing? GURPS something?

But yeah, this is essentially graffiti, not war. So far.
