The Windowsecurity.com site, registered to Enershield Window Film Services, has no connection to the big software firm. But attackers apparently thought it made a clever target for their message. "There will never be any secure Windows OS!" said the page put up by a hacking group calling itself ConClaveCrew. [snip] - The information and commentary is Copyright 2001, by the individual author.
