Attackers defaced a Web server belonging to Microsoft's [NASDAQ:MSFT] MSN
Careers portal Sunday, the latest in a string of security breeches at
sites operated by the software giant.
The home page of the "Who's Hiring" server, which hosts regional job
listings for MSN's Job Hunt section, was replaced with a text message
which read, "Perfect.br owned y0u." The defaced page was still viewable
The compromised server appears to be running Microsoft's Internet
Information Server (IIS) version 4.0.
Microsoft officials were not immediately available for comment.
