Mass Defacement of Website in Malaysia

Up to 300 website defacements was detected up till the end of May 2006. This is the figure produced by Malaysian Computer Emergency Response Team (MyCERT). Most of them were affecting FreeBSD and Linus platforms.

The attacks however were targeted at virtual webhosts ( Virtual hosts are multiple websites hosted on a single machine.)

It was also found out that the attacks were done via PHP scripting (web scripting language) vulnerability.
