June 23, 2001 brought on a small wave of "police" defacements. That is,
defacements of domains that had the word "police" in them, even if the
site had nothing to do with police and law enformcent. Each site was
defaced by a group known as "PoizonB0x", who has recently taken to
defacing machines based on common words or themes.
