    MS Ireland blocks redirection 'hack' - eventually

    Surfers attempting to visit Microsoft's Irish website via Microsoft.ie on Tuesday morning were greeted with a defaced page instead.

    Hackers sprayed digital graffiti bragging that Microsoft Ireland had been hacked by the previously unknown "Terrorist crew". The message, which contains greetings to other hackers, as is the custom with defaced websites, did not arise through a direct attack on Microsoft's site itself.

    Rather, the miscreants succeeded in somehow re-routing the redirection page from Microsoft.ie to the main site.
