Levi’s Sites Caught With Pants Down

Crackers defaced multiple Web sites belonging to apparel-maker Levi Strauss & Co. on Friday including flagships levi.com and dockers.com.

Jeff Beckman, a spokesperson for the company, said the server was immediately shut down shortly after the intrusion happened at about 12:30 p.m. EDT.

“The global ‘splash’ pages of levi.com and dockers.com were affected. Anyone trying to get into our regional sites via our global ‘splash’ pages was unable to during the two to three hours downtime,” he said.

Beckman confirmed that corporate site Levistrauss.com was also affected on the same day.

The hack was claimed by “Perfect.br”, an active Internet vandal of various sites around the world, and had been reported to security mirror sites safemode.org and alldas.de.
