What is defacement?
A defacement attack is a kind of "vandalism" of a website, where hackers penetrate the website and replace its content with their own messages. It is usually used to cover something bigger, in the background, and the messages may convey a political or religious message, inappropriate content, or a notice that the site has been compromised.
Content alteration is usually achieved by using SQL injection and logging in to the administrator account. Common targets of defacement attacks are government figures and websites, or religious websites, and attacks are most often carried out by hacktivists, who prefer large pages with many viewers.
