Website for computer security experts hacked

Triple F get F for security?

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

First Forensic Forum - a UK based association of computer security professionals - has been hacked.

F3.org's website was defaced (screen shot here) with a message poking fun at the association of computer forensic experts. The timing of the defacement on Thursday was fortuitous (or well planned) since the organisation is coming to the end of a two day conference.

The perpetrator of the attack posted a message taunting the organisation. "The F3 For Security Hacked. What's Happened In The world. Thay Are No Security Or What," S4udi-S3curity-T3rror writes.

Ouch. Well at least First Forensic Forum has no shortage of experts in recovering from security attacks to call on for help.

Curiously other pages (example) behind the front page defacement are operating normally. Defacements are the high-tech equivalent of digital graffiti. Normally they arise from misconfiguration of web server software or vulnerabilities left open by third party hosting firms or webmasters. Such attacks are generally trivial even though, when inflicted on security related organisations, no less embarrassing for all that. ®
