SCO.COM targeted again Posted by Mikko @ 18:05 GMT

The website of the SCO Group has once again been targeted.

Earlier this year several distributed denial-of-service attacks took www.sco.com offline. Longest of them (launched by Mydoom.A) lasted five weeks.

According to Zone-H, yesterday somebody hacked the server and replaced several pages with modified versions. Including one which claims that "Recently we found parts of our code in almost all Microsoft(R) software. We want to bring an action against Microsoft(R) and our legal department is working on that.".

Front page was changed to read "We own all your code - pay us all your money".

The site is now back to normal.
