Microsoft defaced again

by Donna Buenaventura / March 29, 2004 9:39 AM PST

Earlier today (March 29, 2004), one Microsoft web site (http://register.microsoft.co.kr) was compromised and defaced on the Microsoft Korea (microsoft.co.kr) network. The machine was defaced (and is still defaced 15.25 GMT) initially (...) by a Brazilian defacer/group know as "c0derz". The defacer obtained an unauthorized access to this system by using a misconfiguration in the Frontpage Estensions. After some minutes many other defacers crew has started to redeface the same site. "Silver Lords", "int3rc3pt0r" take part to this "tour" in the Microsoft site.
