Mass defacement puts Turkey on the map


A Turkish online vandal breached the security of a group of Web servers hosting more than 38,500 Web sites in less than a day, vaulting Turkey past Brazil as the source of most defacements, watchdog Zone-H.org stated on Thursday.

The vandal, who uses the handle "Iskorpitx," originally tagged about 21,500 Web pages and then, a few hours later, defaced another 17,000, Zone-H.org said in a statement. The watchdog site--which hosts copies, or mirrors, of defaced sites--had trouble keeping up with the pace of defacements, said Roberto Preatoni, founder of Zone-H.org.
