    Subject: [defaced-commentary] NEC USA Defaced
    A short time ago, defacement group Prime Suspectz compromised and defaced
    the NEC USA Web site at http://www.nec.com.
    This is the 4th NEC Web site Prime Suspectz has defaced. Besides NEC USA,
    they have also defaced NEC Taiwan, NEC Colombia, and NEC Brazil.
    The group WFD has also defaced NEC Hong Kong.
    Ironically, the current special feature on the NEC USA Web site today is
    about Biometrics and Computer Security.
    NEC is a manufacturer of computer hardware and electronics and has a whole
    division based out of Japan dedicated to "discrete devices".
