It appears that there is a little hacker contest going on this weekend. We have received reports of several sites being hacked by different groups. One of the web sites that posts counts of hacker activity shows several known hacker groups that are having lots of fun.
Now is it because of the long weekend or are the kiddies out of school for summer vacation and they are bored already. Hard to tell, all we can do is keep our eyes open. Hopefully all of our readers have taken the necessary steps to harden and protect their web pages and can sit back and enjoy the long weekend. If you haven't, you can sit back and enjoy the long weekend but come Tuesday morning you will be busy fixing the mess that the kiddies leave behind.
In case you want some information about how to harden and protect your webservers take a look at the information available in the SANS Reading Room. We have some of the best and brightest contributors that give us some great ideas.
