By Deane Barker on July 30, 2003

French hackers break into Ky. government computers: The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet ran an internal audit on their network and found that hackers based in France had gotten root and were using the machines to stored pirated games and movies:

“At least two movies —Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life and Spy Kids 3D: Game Over— were posted to the site within 24 hours of their release last Friday, according to the report. Other movies, in French, including Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, Bloodwork, and Die Another Day were also stored there.”
