Subject: Re: [defaced-commentary] Crackers deface Ferrari

Hi, Brian.

Every major site posted an article about it, here in Brazil. And the reasons are: Barrichelo and the defacers are Brazilians. But, IMHO, everybody made a mistake, including Mr. Leyden from The Register. As far as I know, the sites don't belong to the real Ferrari, and I said it in my article (in colaboration with Eva Mothci and Fernando Sousa, from Terra/Lycos):

http://www.infoguerra.com.br/infonews/viewnews.cgi?newsid1021323288,70815,

There were 3 defaced sites: ferrari-group.com and ferrari-group.biz, defaced by S4t4n1c_Souls and ferrari.co.jp, defaced by Silver Lords.
The mirrors are:

http://www.zone-h.org/defaced/2002/05/12/www.ferrari.co.jp
http://www.zone-h.org/defaced/2002/05/12/www.ferrari-group.com
http://www.zone-h.org/defaced/2002/05/12/www.ferrari-group.biz

Click on www.ferrari-group.com (it's restored now). Do you really think this site belongs to Ferrari? (The title of the page is "new domain"!!)

Ferrari is located at Maranello, Italy, and its company's name is Ferrari
S.p.A. But, take a look at these whois:

Ferrari-group.biz and ferrari-group.com (the domain ferrari-group.com was
created in 2001-09-27, only 6 months ago!!!):
