Official site red-carded...

The official website for the Japanese 2002 football World Cup has been taken down after it was hacked. The site's front page displayed the message "*uck Japan hack by Chinese GX boy", while other pages appeared completely blank. The site has been closed and will remain down until organisers can assure its security; it normally receives around 100,000 hits a day.
