    `Evil Angelica' Parodies Government Site Hacking Duo

    Mocking the efforts of a defacement team known as the "Deceptive
    Duo," an online vandal who refers to herself as "Evil Angelica" has stuck
    at least two Web sites since Monday.
    The tongue-in-cheek attacker, calling herself "The Mystical Mono,"
    replaced the home pages at Eligance.com and Saad.de with a parody of the
    document that has been posted at dozens of U.S. government sites by the
    Deceptive Duo since late April.
    The Duo's defacements, which included systems operated by the Federal
    Aviation Administration and the U.S. Navy, stated that the team's mission
    was to "take necessary measures to ensure that the public is aware of The
    United States of America's lack of security."
    According to the Deceptive Duo, "We are two U.S. citizens that understand
    how sad our country's cybersecurity really is."
    Mirror of one parody defacement:
