Nothing too major,a simple defacement,it wouldn't even look like a hack if wasn't for browser title bar along with the
picture,so someone must of had access to their sources.

I am not generally a fan of hacking, but a friend of mine played with the recently-regrouped-and-broke-up-again punk band the feederz. What's that got to do with anything? The singer/guitarist Frank Discussion is a rather smart cookie with a chip on his shoulder labeled "George Bush". I have no such chips, but the fact that he and some friends hacked (these are screens of REAL HACKS, folks) CNN, Yahoo! and MSN (couldn't find a link to that one) with some chuckle-worthy results bears mention.
