3 Big data security analytics techniques

Defacers turned motor sport fans yesterday in a protest against the controversial decision to gift Michael Schumacher victory at the Austrian Grand Prix.

Ferrari-group.com was defaced by a group called S4t4n1c_Souls after the race with a profane message criticising Ferrari's management for ordering Rubens Barichello, who dominated the race, the make way for Schumacher on the last corner, handing him an undeserved victory.

"BARRICHELO ROX FERRARI SUX," the message reads, in part. Defacement archive Alldas.org records eight attacks against Ferrari in recent months.

Drivers have been handed victory before but the end of the race at the A1 ring was widely has sparked particular criticism because it was seen as a particularly cynical ploy, that went against any notion of sportsmanship in F1.

The Ferrari team have been summoned to appear before the sport's governing body, the FIA (International Automobile Federation), on 26 June. Schumacher may be docked points for Ferrari's tactics during the race, the BBC reports. ®
