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."

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
