Securing Web Applications Made Simple and Scalable

A sub-domain on Intel's Web site has been defaced, apparently by same hacker that also sprayed tasteless graffiti on Gateway's site in an earlier attack.

Support pages on Intel's site were replaced by a profane message from The-Rev of cracker group the "sm0ked crew". The defacement, which is almost identical to that inflicted on Gateway, is mirrored on Attrition and can be seen here.

At the time of writing the defacement had been removed by Intel but the sub-domain on Intel's web site, talisman1.cps.intel.com, was temporarily unavailable. The rest of Intel's site was apparently unaffected by the attack, which will nonetheless cause acute embarrassment in Santa Clara.

In common with many sites successfully attacked by crackers in recent months, Intel's Web site runs Microsoft's IIS4 Web server on a NT4 platform. ®
