Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

The UK Web Site of Burger King has been defaced once again by hackers who have chosen to poke fun at the site's security and praise arch rival McDonalds.

Hackers from a previously unknown group, called the KeBaB KrU, left the following embarrassing message on the site's front page: "0wn3d burgerking.co.uk obvious pro McD comment: BK sucks goto McDs! ShiSh 0wn3d this eye-eye-ess site for KeBaB KrU".

Burgerking.co.uk runs the s'kiddies favourite IIS on an NT4 platform.

The latest defacement is doubly embarrassing for administrators of the site because it was defaced less than a month ago in an almost identical manner.

At the time of writing the site has not been repaired (perhaps managers are more concerned about the effect of Britain's mounting foot and mouth disease epidemic on the burger chain's business?)

The defacement will in due course doubtless be recorded of archive sites like Attrition.org and Alldas.de. ®
