Hacker leaves explosions on nuclear website

The Ottawa Citizen newspaper said every media release on the Canadian Safety Commission’s website had been labelled as a security breach on Wednesday. When opened, each document had a headline reading ‘For immediate release’ and underneath was a large photo of an exploding atomic bomb.

“We are in discussions with the (Internet service) provider. When we were informed the website had been tampered with, we immediately disabled the media module,” said commission spokesman Aurel Gervais, dismissing the suggestion that the hacker had been able to access secret information. The media site at was working normally on Thursday. The Citizen — which published a colour photograph of one of the tampered pages — said the hacker had left a message saying ‘Please dont (sic) put me in jail … oops, I divided by zero’. reuters, the Bomb.

    I think that there will be stronger legislation in the future against internet criminals. There is a rise in cyber crime as accessing the internet becomes more widespread. You really have to be with your personal information, espescially when on wireless networks.
