    Deface Road Runner, Save the Whales?

    Security at three Web sites operated by AOL Time Warner's [NYSE:AOL] Road
    Runner service was compromised Thursday. An attacker replaced the sites'
    usual home pages with a message about saving whales. 
    Defaced were the home pages of the cable-based Internet service's sites
    for users in Austin, Texas, and in Kansas City, as well as a site serving
    subscribers in Maine. All but the Kansas City defacement were still
    viewable this morning.
    Officials from Road Runner, which serves more than 2 million subscribers
    in markets across the United States, are investigating the incident and
    had no immediate comment.
