Netscape defaced...

Well in a way. Today Netscape was the victim of one of those notorious XSS attacks. The attack wasn't malicious and only made javascript pop-ups that at worse redirected users to Digg. Lucky for Netscape it could have been much worse and it wasn't. The good part of this is that they have already fixed the problem, which is much faster than sites usually remedy the issues they have. F-secure has a screenshot on their site if you want to see exactly what it looked like.
