War of the Worlds Posted by Mikko @ 15:46 GMT

We got a note from one of our readers about a web defacement which is more interesting than the average web graffiti. Mainly because this one hits a really high-profile web site; the official home page of one of the biggest movies of the year: War of the Worlds by Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise.

Here's a screenshot of www.waroftheworlds.com before and after. The defacement is done by the usual suspects: another Brazilian defacement group.

War of the Worlds

This site is run by Paramount Pictures on Apache/PHP in Internap address space.

Thanks to Grelmar for the heads-up.
