A group of pro-Islamic crackers replaced the content on Internet Security Systems' X-Force Internet Watch page with a profane anti-war message.A group of pro-Islamic crackers defaced a Web page belonging to Internet Security Systems Inc.s X-Force research team Monday, replacing the pages normal content with a profane anti-war message. ISS, the huge Atlanta-based security company, removed the page from the Internet following the attack. The page, called the X-Force Internet Watch, was part of a research project. The page allowed college students to download copies of the companys Black Ice PC Protection, a personal firewall and IDS system. An ISS spokeswoman would not go into details on the nature of the research project.
The ISS page was defaced sometime Monday afternoon by a group known as the Unix Security Guards. The group has defaced hundreds of Web sites since the onset of the war against Iraq, usually posting an anti-war diatribe on the compromised site.
