'We own all your code - pay us all your money'

Using blade systems to cut costs and sharpen efficiencies

Visitors to SCO's website this morning were treated to a rare moment of corporate self-awareness after hackers apparently replaced an image linking to the undoubtedly scintillating "Extending Legacy Applications and Databases to the Web and Wireless Devices with SCOx Web Services Substrate" with a graphic bearing the rather more promising "We own all your code - pay us all your money":

Naturally, we at El Reg cannot condone such behaviour and hope that the ne'er-do-well behind this piece of waggery is suitably ashamed of himself. We await his arrest and long imprisonment with eager anticipation, and if the authorities would like a clue in tracking down the culprit, they should look at what the young lady is writing on the board. ®
