Web professionals site hacked by cartoon character

Rug Rat makes self-aggrandising association look silly

The British Association of Web Professionals Web site has been hacked by someone calling him or herself Evil Angelica. The site now features the message "British Association of Web professionals? Evil Angelica strikes again!" with an eye-catching image of the Angelica Rug Rat cartoon character.

The site is still down as of 2pm GMT and a mirror of it has been posted to Attrition.

Evil Angelica appears to be a new pseudonym and has hacked three sites this month, one in which he/she claimed to have deleted all the site's files and another where he/she posted a deranged sex story.

Still, at least some hackers are thinking graphically rather than simply putting up ranting plain text messages. ®
