High Profile Foreign Sites

What do Lucent, Silicon Graphics, Epson, Borland, NEC, Visa, Nintendo and Nextel have in common? They were all victims of web page defacement this month, mostly by a group calling themselves 'prime suspectz'. The catch? In each case, it wasn't the United States based web server. 'prime suspectz' and other defacers have recently taken on a pattern of going after their slightly lesser known foreign pages. In cases like Silicon Graphics, their own machine running Irix was compromised, leading to more questions about Irix security. Had each of these been the primary/US based server, we no doubt would have seen several news articles about the events.
