If you pop on over to the official South African website for security firm AVG right now you’ll get a bit of a surprise, courtesy of a Turkish hacker known as Over-x…
As you can see, the page has been hacked and defaced. Interestingly, the defacement lists various license details for AVG products.
Whilst I don’t yet know the motive or means of the attack I always find it embarrassing when this happens to a security firm, despite the fact that defacements are becoming increasingly common across the entire web these days.
Of course AVG aren’t the only such victims of defacement lately – a reseller for Avast! was targeted recently and data for 20,000 customers was leaked.
