A hacker posted antiwar slogans on the official Web site of a company in Nishio, Aichi Prefecture, in a case similar to cyber-attacks reported worldwide following the start of the U.S.-led war on Iraq.

Nakanippon Casting Co. said Monday its Web site had been defaced with slogans such as “Hey Bush Stop The War!” The Web site was shut down and the firm plans to increase security measures to help prevent further incidents, company officials said.
