An IBM site for developers was defaced over the weekend, with attackers
replacing some of the Web pages on the site with ones containing their
own messages, IBM confirmed Monday.

Word of the vandalism, which took place on the IBM DeveloperWorks site,
was first posted late Saturday on the Full Disclosure security mailing

IBM restored the original pages within a few hours, though copies of the
compromised pages were quickly reposted elsewhere.

No data was lost, nor were any user passwords exposed during the breach,
said an IBM spokesman. The site was undergoing routine maintenance
during the time of the breach.
