On July 2, 2001, the Pakistan UNICEF site was defaced by "g0thic milk". This is the third known defacement of a UNICEF site. The first defacement occured in January of 1998 and presented a twisted (and somewhat humorous) rant supporting the 'Free Kevin' (www.freekevin.com) movement. At the time, many in hacker circles questioned the motives and ethics for defacing a non-profit site such as UNICEF. Subsequent UNICEF defacements were simple (and boring) text messages.
