Hackers Target House.gov Sites. By Brian Krebs, Washington Post (August 6, 2009).

Hackers broke into more than a dozen Web sites for members of the U.S. House of Representatives in the past week, replacing portions of their home pages with digital graffiti, according House officials.

The sites hit were hosted by a private vendor, GovTrends, which provides Web hosting for about 100 House sites.
