By Brian McWilliams, Newsbytes VIENNA, VIRGINIA, U.S.A., 09 Aug 2001, 9:04 AM CST 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.
