Obama site hacked, redirects clicks to Clinton's site

Amusing to see that, as the race for the next Prez of the US reaches another peak that Barak Obama's Web site was hacked over the weekend, with punters being directed to Shrillery Clinton's site instead.

The hack was thanks to yet another of those cross-site scripting flaws that seem to be appearing all over the show at the moment.

Someone calling himself Mox on the Obama Web site forums has claimed responsibility for the hack:

"You may also be wondering, how did you get Hillary's site to appear where Obama's should be?" wrote Mox. "The answer to that is, through the magical world of cross site scripting."

The exploit was locked down fairly quickly by the Obama camp, but not before details, including a video, were posted to YouTube.

Ah, the joys of t'Internet...
