    FAA website hacked

    The FAA confirmed that their website got hacked this week:

    Security is really a never-ending task.

    Wow, This sucks.... Especially after Sept.11 and the jets... Hmmm, I wonder if these are the Chineese hackers mentioned in the other post

    Hmmm i don't think this hack came from china

    "This situation proves that we are all still vulnerable even after 9/11," the DeceptiveDuo posted on its defacement. "Tighten the security before a foreign attack forces you to. At a time like this, we cannot risk the possibility of compromise by a foreign enemy," the Web page statement read.
    This is what we can read in this article but it seem's that the group is actually brazilian!!! go figure!

    It is probably a kid thinking that hacking all important sites in the world is cool.
    I think 90% of hacking is in this situation!

    The FAA said Thursday that they'd reported the Deceptive Duo's intrusion. "We've asked the FBI to prosecute if they catch the people," said Takemoto.
    WTF! ! ! Thats just wrong. Im sure the hackers left backups of the files in a different folder. Thats what you get for helping our Nation to better its security! U get thrown in jail if you get caught. These guys should be given medals or something. I have to say, I disagree with the website defacement. . . that was wrong. . . but still. . . . if they didn't degface the site & still alerted the Admins about the problem. . . they still would have been thrown in jail. Dont you think?

    "We are two individuals who risk our future and our lives to help the Nation in such a vulnerable time," the Duo wrote. "Somebody has to do it, if we don't, a terrorist might."
    I got one word to say. . . . . w00000000000000000t! ! ! heh. I hope they find a better way of fulfilling their mission without the website defacements though. If a local hacker can access this stuff . . . . what happens when a terrorist hacks in & gets ahold of it? This is a sad day we live in.
