RIAA defaced -again!

  1. Now if my workplace was ever hacked, you can bet your bottom dollar that I would be finding out exactly how it was done, and then patching and fixing accordingly. Making a security mistake once is kind of understandable. Making it twice is foolish. Making it three times or more is quite simply downright *****ic.

    What's also pretty *****ic is taking on the computing black hats. You challenge P2P file sharing, IRC and so forth and you take on some hard case genetically engineered mega-geeks who can do some pretty nasty things to your web sites....

    And that's exactly what's happened again: "Reader reports are flooding in that the has been defaced - again. Underneath the greets, there is a list of RIAA 'recommended' file-sharing tools, such as KaZaA and eDonkey. Downloads from these sites are 'sponsored by RIAA'." ;)

    Methinks that this is not the last of it, not by a long shot.

    More here and here.

    Interestingly enough, have just posted a discussion here on's annual losers and winners list in digital media. No surprise here that Kazaa comes first and the RIAA come last. More here and here.
