Microsoft hacked in the Balkans

Author: JT Smith

From The Register: ""A Microsoft Web site has been defaced in the latest of a string of attacks that have
called into question the ability of IT companies to keep their systems secure.
The software giant's Slovenian site,, was sprayed with pro-Linux
graffiti by a hacker who gained control of the site, which is hosted in the former
Yugoslavian country. In a reference to Mark Renton's famous speech at the
beginning of the film Trainspotting, the site was changed to feature a tirade that
equated choosing Microsoft software to being a moron."
