According to ISS there’s a massive hacker (or should that be cracker?) attack brewing for Sunday, July 6. This event was apparently dubbed the Defacers Challenge [NOTE: That web site was taken down yesterday]. The story has made it’s way to ComputerWorld, slashdot, many other news sites, and a few blogs. Even though I’m sure my everything on my system is properly patched (my Red Hat Network Alert tool has a blue check), I shut down any service I can live without for the next few days. Whether or not this started as a prank, I’m sure some script kiddies will take it seriously.
