6- We are sad to inform all our friends that LebanonArt was under vicious attack from individuals who apparently don't approve of its content. In an average of one attempt every two hours, LebanonArt was fighting off SirCam worm, one of the most dangerous computer viruses
The attackers have used many names and different messages to attract LebanonArt administration to unleash the virus.
When these attempts failed, they began giving themselves Arabic and Lebanese names to gain the trust of the webmasters, Our technical team has taken preventive measures to shield us from these assaults and so far no serious damage has resulted.

Warm thanks go to:
Jean-Pierre Matar, Creative designer.
Roy Naufal, Webmaster coordinator (
Jean Delalande . Marina Chemaly , French editors.
Jana Marti, Marketing developer.
Samih Ajaca, Webmaster advisor.

Artfully yours!
