AOL confirms ICQ servers cracked

Author: JT Smith

NewsFactor Network: "Two electronically defaced Web servers have prompted AOL (NYSE: AOL) officials to launch an investigation into who gained illegal access to their ICQ
instant messaging servers on Monday. For the second time this year, ICQ users were greeted with various messages by hackers as they tried to access
their user groups and the ICQ search engine.

An ICQ logo with a flashing "Hacked" graphic across it, a flag with another graphic depicting the name of the hacker group and a text message taunting
system administrators made their way onto at least two ICQ home pages, and possibly an unconfirmed third page."
