Classification board Web site hacked

Defacement appears to be from an anti-Web filter group

OFLC site was hacked Thursday night

OFLC site was hacked Thursday night

The Office of Film and Literature Classification (OLFC) Web site has been defaced by what appears to be a group opposed to the government's Internet content filtering plan.

The defacement, possibly a SQL injection attack, is the latest move to shake-up the federal government's Internet content filtering scheme. It seems to have appeared for less than a few hours before the site was taken offline, leaving a blank bad request page.

The OFLC is responsible for the classification of film, computer games, print publications, and Internet content inconjunction with the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).

Computerworld captured a screenshot of the hacked site and an excerpt of the attack is below.

"this site contains information about the boards that have the right to CONTROL YOUR FREEDOMZ. The Classification Board has the right to not just classify content (the name is an ELABORATE TRICK), but also the right to DECIDE WHAT IS AND ISNT APPROPRAITE and BAN CONTENT FROM THE PUBLIC. We are part of an ELABORATE DECPETION from CHINA to CONTROL AND SHEEPIFY the NATION, to PORTECT THE CHILDREN. All opposers must HATE CHILDREN, and therfore must be KILLED WITH A LARGE MELONS during the PROSECUTION PARTIES IN SEPTEMBER. Come join our ALIEN SPACE PARTY."

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
