I had one heck of a good laugh this weekend. The company I work for provides data hosting and web hosting for the company eccouncil.org. They are the same company that issues the "Certified Ethical Hacker" certificate. For years I've thought that this certification was not really necessary. Now, as I'm older and have more experience...I see this as a joke.
Not only that, but they plagiarize A LOT of their work. Not to mention some hilarious broken english on their site. (Unfortunately I wasn't quick enough to get a good screen shot)
Well their site was hacked and defaced. and this was put up in it's place:

Here's some reading material about this joke of a "school"

Do yourself a favor, don't fall for this crappy certification or it's "cool" and "edgy" name. If anything study the material they offer, but don't bother spending the cash on the cert, it's really not recognized as useful.
