World of Hell crackers today hacked the website of eminent US computer society, the Association for Computing Machinery.
The site's homepage was replaced with the following defacement: "Owned by Messiah-X_ from WoH."
The Safemode defacement monitoring site said acm.org was running Netscape's Enterprise Web server software on IBM's AIX Unix OS. The hack is thought to have been made through an open telnet or FTP remote access port.
WoH members said they formed their hacking group earlier this year to take over prominent sites. Their stated mission is "to show how even the big boys are able to be hacked. Every thing is hackable, just depends how much time is spent hacking it."
ACM boasts a global membership of more than 80,000 IT professionals and claims to be the largest and longest-established computing society.
The hack had not been repaired at time of going to press.
