    HGfl are updating schools taking their feed here: RM Web Hosting - Current Issue [Available from within HGfL schools only] Meanwhile RM are investigating.

    It would appear that the attack was directed at The Grid homepage only and no other data was compromised. How true that is will become evident in due course.

    The simplicity of the attack suggests it's Just a script kiddie defacement. I'd guess they even used some off the shelf tools to do it. Which would mean there was a well known exploit kicking about in a script or CGI on the server.
