israeli students ask muslim hackers to use their designs for defacing

Apparently, cyber attacks are rampant in Israel with dozens of sites taken down monthly by Islamic hackers who replace the sites with anti-Israeli messaging. While they can't exactly end these attacks, McCann Digital Tel-Aviv and the Israeli ad school Bezefer took it upon themselves to at least make the hacker takeover pages look a little nicer.
Students collected 50 hacked website designs, made them look miuch better, sent them back to the hackers and asked them to at least consider using the better designs the next time they decide to take a site down.
With the mantra, "if you can't fight them, redesign them, it appears the students have had a bit of fun and, perhaps, have made the hacked Israeli web a bit more pleasing to the eye.
