A hacker going by the name of ThePike yesterday defaced Alldas.de - a site that tracks Web site defacements... A well-known Web site that tracks defacements on other sites by hackers such as PoizonB0x was itself defaced yesterday by a hacker going under the name of ThePike.

    Alldas.de is one of a shrinking number of sites that track a growing number of defacements. At the end of May a similar site, called Attrition.org, said it would stop tracking Web site defacements because the volunteer staff can no longer keep up with the volume.

    The administrators of Alldas.de acknowledged their vulnerability to hackers: "Nothing is 100 percent secure," they said in a statement, "and today we managed to realise that our security wasn't as good as we thought."
