Another US government Web site has been hacked -- this time by the most saucy and voluptuous villainess around. Sarin -- a busty, PVC clad, whip-wielding dominatrix -- broke into the site last night, according to a report by ZDNet. Instead of being able to read about the rather sober day-to-day workings of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), visitors to the site were ambushed by a rather blunt message. "First of all, I own your Federal ass," it read. "Secondly, it's a fucking disgrace that you didn't fix your cold fusion vulnerabilities after such widespread publicity. "I'd seriously consider hiring a new admin if I were you. "Respect to: vOOdOO, mozy, pOgO, neeper, syxx, Xessor, xoloth1, Devil-C, Pulsewidth, gH, keebler elves, blOw team, LevelSeven, HFD, HiP, NYS and all others. "Hacked by sarin" Although the hack attack took place last night, FERC has been quick to show "Miss Whiplash" the door. The site appears to be up and running again, but there is no mention of the break-in. Earlier this week Kevin Mitnick was sentenced to three years and ten months in prison and ordered to pay $4,125 in token damages for his notorious hacking offences. The only hacker to make the FBI's 10 most wanted list, it's thought Mitnick could be out on parole within a year. ® See also: US hackers picket for Mitnick...
