    edit:

    it's been removed I am guessing, but for anybody who missed it:

    That is Microsoft's 404 page. The server was not compromised.

          Owned OutLaw Group by Pharoeste e Wolfblack
          Owned by OutLaw Group

          Owned by OutLaw Group

          Owned by OutLaw Group

          Owned by OutLaw Group

            The page referenced in the first post 404's now, but it didn't before -- the "owned by OutLaw Group" stuff was actually there.

              It doesn't say that, though.

              Edit to add: Interesting. They must have caught it.

                      I'm reading a little about this at Microsoft's forums, someone sent one of the MS Devs there the link and he sent out an internal email about it.

                        Abuse always happens. I hope Microsoft takes action against the defacers and patch their web server software.

                          Site is slow though. It's already been slash dotted.

                            Many large sites have been hacked in their time (Amazon for example) so it's really not that big of a deal.
                            Yes, one would expect a company like Microsoft to be better prepared for something like this, but if you can make it, you can break it. There is no such thing as "unhackable."

                              There is, just unplug your internet connection and your PC will be unhackable from the net.
