Hackers deface Ozzie Liberal Party Web site

Hackers have defaced the official Australian Liberal Party Web site with a naughty reference to Prime Minister John Howard.

The hack, which took place on Tuesday morning (Australia) time, posted a message banner on the liberal.org.au Web site quoting Mr Howard as "I like to s--k d--k!"

Hmmmm - very funny. I think I stopped scribbling such things in my school textbooks when I was about nine years old...

The site administrators are said to have spotted the `problem' within a few hours of the site being hacked and changed the page back to the original text.

Reports suggest that the Liberal Party's federal secretariat are reviewing their security arrangements, but it looks like a cross-site scripting flaw, judging from an Ozzie dev site posting here...
