    According to an official statement issued by the Recording Industry 
    Association of America today, "I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Weiner - 
    do you eat cheese?" 
    Which is pretty bizarre even by the standards set by the RIAA's recent 
    Of course, this hasn't been issued by the RIAA at all. It's a 
    defacement, only a slightly more creative one than usual. In a novel 
    twist the hackers created a form allowing submissions to feed directly 
    into the RIAA's own press release page. As you can see:-
    Portions of the RIAA's website were inaccessible for a week after the 
    site was defaced earlier this year.
    ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org
