    Reader reports are flooding in that the RIAA.org has been defaced - 
    again. At time of writing, the site appears to be down, And several 
    readers have been kind enough to include screen grabs, showing that 
    the front page today carried the following message. 
    RIAA - 0wn3d by.... ;p 
    oooh riaa want's to hack Filesharing Users / Servers ? - better lern 
    to secure your own server...

    Underneath the greets, there is a list of RIAA 'recommended' 
    file-sharing tools, such as KaZaA and eDonkey. Downloads from these 
    sites are 'sponsored by www.riaa.org'. 
    The RIAA site has been hacked four times in recent months. Surely, 
    they should have figured out how to put a stop to this by now? 
    ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org
