Security for virtualized datacentres

According to an official statement issued by the Recording Industry Association of America today, "I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Weiner … do you eat cheese?"

Which is pretty bizarre even by the standards set by the RIAA's recent communications.

Of course, this hasn't been issued by the RIAA at all. It's a defacement, only a slightly more creative one than usual. In a novel twist the hackers created a form allowing submissions to feed directly into the RIAA's own press release page. As you can see:-

Portions of the RIAA's website were inaccessible for a week after the site was defaced earlier this year. ®
