June 23, 2001 brought on a small wave of "police" defacements. That is, defacements of domains that had the word "police" in them, even if the site had nothing to do with police and law enformcent. Each site was defaced by a group known as "PoizonB0x", who has recently taken to defacing machines based on common words or themes.
