Security forum hacked

by on12 November 2007


Embarrassing, or what?

A U.K.-
based association of computer security professionals has been hacked. First Forensic Forum's Website was defaced with a message poking fun at the organization.

The hack came as the Forum came to the end of a two-day conference. The hacker posted a message taunting the organization, "The F3 For Security Hacked. What's Happened In The world. Thay Are No Security Or What," S4udi-S3curity-T3rror wrote.

Other pages behind the front page defacement are working normally and the hack was probably the result of a misconfiguration of Web server software or vulnerabilities left open by third-party hosting firms or Webmasters.

Still, this is quite embarrassing for the organization.
