Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Microsoft's UK Web site was defaced late Thursday by Prime Suspectz with a simple re-direct page and the unostentatious message: "Thank you for visiting. You are now being redirected to the Microsoft UK web site. Please click here if you are not redirected within 5 seconds. ©2000 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved."

In the lower left of the page was the announcement "Prime Suspectz owned Microsoft again!!!"

The crew has been quite busy lately nailing MS pages around the world, including Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Brazil and Slovenia, for a total of nine defacements.

They also hit NEC in the USA, as well as sites in Taiwan, Colombia and Brazil, again with a modest defacement which included the simple tag line, "prime suspectz owned nec!!" ®
