Hacks/Cracks I had meant to do an update to my previous high profile summary of sorts. After drinking a Corona I began working on this post and it hit home yet again. Half way through writing this, another server on Hewlett Packard's network was defaced. I don't know what I find more ironic, that four HP servers were defaced this month, or that in each case they were running Windows NT or Linux instead of HP-UX (their own unix operating system). Toward the end of this list are two sites that also strike a bit of irony.. . . I had meant to do an update to my previous high profile summary of sorts.

It is always somewhat ironic when security companies or security related sites get defaced. Attrition is just waiting until we end up mirroring our own defacement.
