Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A BBC Web site has been taken off line after it was defaced by a group of political hacktivists yesterday.

Hacking crew Silver Lords defaced a site belonging to the broadcaster's monitoring service (monitor.bbc.co.uk) with a message protesting about the political situation in Kashmir. The defacement, which is more artistic than the vast majority of such attacks, has been recorded by defacement archive Attrition.org and can be seen
(here).

As is common in such cases the BBC site runs Microsoft's IIS Web server on an NT4 platform. The attack is believed to be the first time that a BBC site has been successfully defaced. ®
