SITE TECHNOLOGY

Hackers alter CBC.ca homepage

from CBC.ca archives | Mon, 21 Apr 1997

A group called the Brotherhood of Warez hacks into the CBC.ca site, changing the homepage to read, "The Media are Liars."

The group is apparently angered by an apocryphal story about a "cyber terrorist" disrupting a Windsor-area home.

The site is restored within an hour, and sweeping security changes are made.
