The Burger King UK website got a grilling for the third time this year after hackers served up the latest exploits to deface the site.
Yesterday a hacker calling himself Mr Agent broke into the web server and left a message reading: "MrAgent hacked this server... admin get a clue...just like burger king says, you can have it your way... they aren't lying.. i wanted this site to be my way!"
The burgerking.co.uk site, which is outsourced to a hosting company in Edinburgh, has been since taken down completely.
Mark Read, network security analyst at MIS, said it was likely that the attack had been carried out using one of the newly discovered vulnerabilities in Microsoft IIS, for which patches were released last week.
He said that although the server had been patched up since the last two defacements in March and April, it was unclear as to how many patches the admin had applied in the meantime.
"One other thing that is interesting," he added, "is why the UK server is outsourced all on its own. The other Burger King sites are all in-house hosted in the States. They all have the same content."
