Notorious website defacement group World of Hell (WoH) issued a warning to the internet community last week as one of its most prominent members went on a hacking spree.
Current WoH front man 'RaFa' has notched up over 500 defacements since 5 January by hitting a number of Linux-based machines hosting multiple websites.
Shortly before Christmas the last of the original members of the WoH crew made an exit from the hacker scene leaving the group's future in doubt.
But an email sent to vnunet.com from WoH member IceKool assured us that, although a lot of the original members had to quit "for personal reasons", the group is now up and running again.
"RaFa and the old crew of WoH are rebuilding the group and plan for it to be bigger than it was before," said IceKool, which may be read as a warning to website administrators.
But RaFa's defacements this year so far have carried a sombre message and a scathing attack on the defacement community instead of the typical "haxxor 0wn3d joo" bragging.
"I have witnessed the defacing scene become more and more ignorant over the years. In the end no one cares that you rooted their system but, if you make them think and wonder, then they won't forget you," read the hacker's comments.
