[I do hope this -- and incidents in the past like the defacement of 
amnesty.org -- will make folks realize that such "hackers" hardly live up 
to the proud history of that word. These malcontents are nothing but 
talentless graffiti sprayers, online vandals who exploit known security 
holes and do little, if any, research on their own. --Declan]

Hi Declan,

FYI, looks like a member of the "The Dispatchers," a coalition of Web
site defacers, accidently "retaliated" Sunday for the terrorist
attacks by defacing a site operated by Aon Corporation, a company with
over 1,000 employees in the WTC, 200 of which are not yet accounted
