The National Collegiate Athletic Association's home page became the latest victim of malevolent hackers last week when its firewall was breached.
Hackers managed to get past the US organisation's firewall security and edit text and some links. Once the attack was confirmed, the webmaster was able to divert users to a mirror site.
The site, which normally features the NCAA and links to other sites promoting its different athletic events, was hacked on a Sunday evening with a page titled "Anti-ncaa". Below it was an encircled fist accompanied by the words "White Power".
Later, the same page was replaced with another, this time without racial slurs. It read "Basketball sucks! Badminton Rules! Commercial-isation of the Internet stops here."
The webmaster confirmed the firewall had been breached and that a new security system was now in place.
