Watch Your Web Sites this Weekend

Administrators need to make sure their Web sites and other exposed network services are as secure as possible over the upcoming July 4 holiday weekend. Intruders will undoubtedly try to take advantage of the American holiday weekend to break into systems while many, if not most, administrators will be away. Internet Security Systems (ISS) reported that at least one group has posted notice of a public Web challenge, urging Web site defacers to join in to massive attacks to see which intruders can be the first to deface 6000 sites in 6 hours.
