Lucent hit by hacking double whammy
By James Middleton [26-07-2001]

Lucent suffered a double hack attack yesterday when its website was defaced twice in a matter of hours.

A defacer calling himself Feltonspray got to the networking giant's site first, leaving the simple message: "Ops another site OWN3D by Feltonspray."

But only a few hours later zEr0, of the presumably Brazilian Quari Hack Force, took over the web server, which was running Netscape enterprise webserver on Irix.
