Hacking singers

Date: July 27, 2006

A Web site belonging to a Minneapolis singer was hijacked Wednesday, by parties unknown, as part of an apparent global rash of such hacking incidents. These purge the sites' content and replace it with text and music in English and another language.

The singer, who goes by the name Lolly Pop, said she knows of one other Twin Cities site that has been affected, and at least 10 other sites — apparently based in the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, Norway and Germany — that have been similarly commandeered.

Lolly Pop's site at remained defaced late Wednesday. Its substitute text read, in part, "In the name of Allaah,the Beneficent,the Merciful...i DeLete All Backup from Host which Belong to Sites And I DoN''t Have The Copy. WooOoOow."
