Teenager hacks into Polish prime minister's server

While Poland's National Security Office (UOP) said it had no idea who hacked his way into the prime minister's World Wide Web server last month, 16-year-old Jacek B admitted to a television crew that he infiltrated the prime minister's server with the help of two colleagues.

While Poland's National Security Office (UOP) said it had no idea who hacked his way into the prime minister's World Wide Web server last month, 16-year-old Jacek B admitted to a television crew that he infiltrated the prime minister's server with the help of two colleagues.

After the security breach became known - visitors to the prime minister's site were directed to visit Playboy's Web site as the new address for govenment information - Boguslaw Kusina, the IS manager of UOP said that "the office observed the situation with special attention, but the hackers gave us no clue for further investigation".

Several days later, however, a Web page signed by Damage was removed from the server. At that time, a television crew interviewed Jacek B who said he would like to do the same with "several other governmental sites".

It is suspected here that the hackers gained access into the server through a free-of-charge Internet connection provided by Poland's national telecommunications provider.
