Russians hack Aussie web site
AN OBSCURE Australian film production company site – 2 Feet Films – became the unlikely victim of Russian hackers. The site was forced to close for four days to fix the problem.
The site's owner, Phil Rich, told the Sydney Morning Herald that the first he'd heard of the attack was when his ISP, Pacific Internet, phoned to inform him they had taken down his site.
Buried deep in the code on one of the web pages was a URL containing suspicious Unix commands that pointed to a mysterious Russian website.
