Looks like there was a contest going on to see how many sites one could deface in a given period. Mixerman over in the MARSH called me on this within 20 minutes of it happening (I was eating dinner at the time), and I immediately got our tech support guy at our colo on the line and we unravelled the damage. Fortunately, it was a hit-and-run defacing, not a more serious hack, and we're beefing up our security. What a pain! What Bios Team did was overwrite all index.* files (.htm, .php, .cgi, etc.) with that bios team page; we overwrote the changes with our last daily/hourly save (depending on the portion of the site) and then reposted changes made since the attack. Sheesh. Fortunately, it was only one of our servers, so only the PSW site and some other sites were affected.
