Hacker targets Bill Gates

Everyone's favorite enemy, the most hated man on the net, was targeted yet again by a hacker.

A hacker recently changed three stories on the Web site of a California newspaper, making one read that Microsoft Corp. chairman Bill Gates was arrested for breaking into NASA computers.

THE ATTACK on the Orange County Register site occurred on Sept. 29 and the paper, which is located in southern California and owned by Freedom Communications Inc., has turned over information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation relating to the identity of the hacker, said spokeswoman Nancy Souza.
She said Gates' name was substituted for Jason Diekman's in a story about Diekman's arrest for breaking into Web sites at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
