"The New Zealand Herald's website fell victim to a page spoofing stunt earlier today, by hackers wanting to publicise their upcoming Kiwicon security conference in November.
In this case, the spoofing meant the hackers displayed a parody of a Herald article to users, rather than a real one, when surfers called up an article on the future of the internet.
"Metlstorm", one of the organisers of Kiwicon Wellington, says it's comparable to taping a fake article into a printed copy of the Herald, before giving the paper to a reader.
The bogus article was marked clearly as "a joke", he says, and contains "wildly unreasonable comment that no sane person would believe."
He is at pains to explain that the stunt is harmless and wasn't a real hack, in the sense of breaking into any systems.
