Win-NT/IIS admins made April Fools by 'hackers'

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "Several crews got busy on April Fools Day to make a mockery of Microsoft security
by targeting Web sites running MS' IIS server over Windows NT/2K for defacement.

Among the higher-profile victims were the Walt Disney Company; the Wall Street
Journal's WebWatch; British Telecomms; HSBC; the US Navy's Center for Tactical
Systems Interoperability (NCTSI); the US Army Training and Doctrine Command
(TRADOC); Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus; and the American Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)."
