Hackers have broken into the servers of USAToday online and posted news stories attacking George W. Bush and Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.
According to Reuters, the attack occurred shortly before 11pm local time last night.
The site was taken down in the early hours of this morning after the bogus stories began to appear on its home page.
USAToday.com has posted a statement saying that it is unsure of the source of the attack, and has refused to say how the hackers gained access.
The service was restored three hours after the incident.
