Remember, Remember the 5th of November, Anonymous holy day of the year!

It’s November 5th again, and like every year the Anonymous hackers are very active on this day in an effort to pay tribute to the 17th century revolutionary Guy Fawkes, who attempted to blow up the English parliament.

This year the activities have started with Lady gaga website that was defaced by Anonymous hacker(s) ( Gaga Daily, a Lady Gaga fan site), also several pages on NBC.com website were defaced with  a claim that user names and passwords for the site had been compromised.  The attack appears to have exploited a vulnerability in community forum software from invision that was used on both sites.
