Hacker forces Royal Navy to suspend website

Quote:
A hacker claims to have broken into the main website run by the British Royal Navy, www.royalnavy.mod.uk, revealing usernames and passwords of administrators.
The hacker, who calls himself TinKode and is believed to hail from Romania, posted information on the web about the compromise and the sensitive passwords he was able to uncover.
How embarrassing.

Not clever

I'm afraid I don't see it as embarrassing but rather as criminal activity. These people think they are so clever (which they may well be) but it's not clever when it causes so much hassle for everybody else. Millions of pounds/dollars are wasted every year in trying to prevent and then rectifying each instance of hacking. Normal commercial sites will pass the costs on to their customers/consumers and in the case of government sites that means us tax payers. I would rather the RN spend money on some aircraft for their planeless carriers than wasting it becuase of toe rags like Tinkode.
