A Columbian security related site (www.antivirus.com.co) was recently defaced by a group known as 'BFH'. With the recent rash of worms and viruses, the notion of relying on anti-virus sites for the latest patches and information comes into question again. Imagine downloading the latest update for your anti-virus software only to find it was infected with a virus it was designed to protect. Oops.

The message put up was "political" in nature.
