USATODAY.com reports hackers "penetrated the site and vandalized the homefront" late last night. Ananova reports bogus stories appeared on the site's home page. Matt Drudge reports the bogus stories included "Bush proposes another new Cabinet post," "Opps says the Pope; Christianity a Sham!" and "Donald Rumsfeld: An American Beauty?"
USATODAY.com was taken offline and restored a few hours later, according to the note on its Web site.
