Hacking leads to Web site probe
HACKERS posted two mysterious messages on a government Web site yesterday, sparking a police investigation and forcing the suspension of the site.
The words 'Own3d by the crows' and 'Hacks by O analista' were found on the home page of the Interactive Government Services Directory - which provides information such as traffic reports and an investment guide - at about 3.30pm.
Technicians shut down the site 15 minutes later.
A department spokeswoman last night stressed that the incident did not put any sensitive government information at risk.
'The directory is hosted in a stand-alone server system without connection to government internal networks,' she said.
