    Commentary From: McIntyre <mcintyreat_private>
    Defacement group PoisonBOx defaced today 3 Web sites of the US government
    - the Web site for the Arcata Fish and Wildlife Office, the US Bankruptcy
    Court, Eastern District of California and the United States District
    Court, Northern District of Texas. 
    Last night the same group targeted 2 Defense MegaCenter Web sites run by
    the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). Both sites were of Defense
    Enterprise Computing Centers - one based in St. Louis and the other in San
    DISA is tasked "to plan, engineer, develop, test, manage programs,
    acquire, implement, operate, and maintain information systems for C4I and
    mission support under all conditions of peace and war" and ironically
    claims to be "helping protect against, detect and react to threats to both
    its information infrastructure and information sources."
