    Three 17-year-olds take credit for inserting pornographic images into America Online's widely used chat service.

    April 27, 2002 | Users of the latest version of AOL's Instant Messenger (AIM) software started encountering an unpleasant surprise on Saturday morning: At least three crackers -- malicious hackers -- began inserting pornographic images into "AIM Today" and vandalizing content on at least four screens of the chat software.

    Ah yes, but this wasn't AOhell, this was AIM, the one piece of software that AOL makes that except for a few memory bugs works generally well and is free to boot!

    besides who the hell uses the today window anyway? it's always the first thing I uncheck after instlaling AIM or TRillian.
