Euro Web site devalued by defacement

UK Govt and Novell fall victim to IIS hacker

A UK Government Web site providing information for business about the euro has been devalued by Internet vandals.

The site, Euro.gov.uk, was defaced by well known hacker Prime Suspectz who posted a message bragging about his hacking skills and poking fun at the English.

Prime Suspectz's message, which is mirrored on defacement Web site Alldas.de here, appears to poke fun at English men who "prefer to attend a game of soccer instead of settling with its [sic] wives who excrement this".

The message goes on to suggest that the Queen "sucks". Shocking stuff and the sort of thing the might cause UK premier Tony Blair to choke.

The site was unavailable at the time of writing as administrators rebuild its content on its Microsoft IIS Web servers.

After defacing the UK Government site, Prime Suspectz went on to have a pop at Novell's server in Utah making it the latest in a long-line of IT firms to have weaknesses in its security exposed in public. This defacement can be seen here. ®
