Author: JT Smith

Newsbytes: "A mass defacement involving hundreds of Web sites should go into the hacking record
books with an asterisk, a security expert said today.

On Thursday a hacking group known as World of Hell (WoH) took credit at its site for
defacing 679 homepages in one minute. A mirror of one of the defacements, as well as
a list of the compromised sites, was captured by the Safemode defacement information
site."
