    Will be interesting to see if this actually provokes a more serious reaction against the hacker.

    The hacked site was not a Government website - which is not to say it won't necessarily "attract attention"

    Obviously those writing the articles have NOT done their research since we have verified proof these attacks and hacks have been done on a VERY LARGE scale as we have shown "time and again" that tens of thousands of pages and literally hundreds if not thousands of sites have had these same kinds of pages and links inserted into them.

    I agree this case was NOT a government site, but we have discovered university sites, as well as sites that could possibly get public funds in the lists at times, so this problem is very wide spread and not an isolated incident.
