49 Sites U.S. senator Hacked

The first state address President Barack Obama in front of the Parliament of the United States welcomed into a number of hacker attacks MPs website. A total of 49 websites owned by members of the U.S. House of Representatives was hacked shortly after Obama's speech delivered Wednesday (27/1/2010) last week.

Front page websites were suddenly changed into a white background and only display one line of text that criticized Barack Obama. Writing also abandoned their calling by the name Red Eye Crew, the group's famous hackers from Brazil.

According to a report that was launched PC Magazine, websites are being attacked all managed GovTrends. Event of attack, called deface (changing the face) like this ever happened on GovTrends site and in August 2009.

For the attack, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Republican Party Chairman John Boehner asked exhaustive investigation of how the attack could occur. For the record, in the case, members of the House of Representatives website owners do not ever change the admin password that is given from the beginning.

U.S. House of Representatives GovTrends also blamed for this incident. Because, according to the U.S. House of Representatives earlier reports, the attacks on websites run by companies that previously have weaknesses in terms of security. Is this also should be a lesson for the U.S. House of Representatives to choose a reliable vendor?
