Hot Fuzz

Unknown hackers defaced the Metropolitan Police's careers website over the weekend.

Digital graffiti on metpolicecareers.co.uk featured a picture of a greenish cuddly monster (vaguely resembling Sulley from Monsters Inc) and a message mocking Scotland Yard's anti-terrorism unit.

The offending message has since been purged from the site. The digital graffiti attack is of little importance, but no less embarrassing for Scotland Yard.

Netcraft reports that the site runs on a Windows 2000 platform. ®
