Spam and the SuperBowl

My, my, it seems that nothing is sacred. Spammers will even try to interrupt that orgy of bad gamesmanship that is the Superbowl:

Hackers targeted Superbowl-related websites last week in attempt to direct American football fans to sites hosting malware.

Sites related to the Miami venue of the NFL Championship game - and - were among a number of sites hacked into and modified to insert reference to a hostile script running on Chinese site The NFL's website was not affected by the attack.

I doubt that anything they managed to do was as awful as actually having to sit through that five hours it takes to play 60 minutes of the game.
