The obscenities appeared on Wednesday on the Web site www.usinfo.state.gov, which is designed to provide information to computer users outside the United States. The site was still out of order on Thursday afternoon.
Boucher said the site was hosted by a server outside the State Department and no sensitive or classified information was ever in danger.
A State Department team was investigating the incident.
Boucher did not describe the obscenities or know if they were politically motivated. --entire article from Washington Post
