The Orange County Register on Tuesday said its Web site was infiltrated Sept. 29 and that an article was changed to say Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates had been arrested for breaking into NASA computers. The story was about Jason Diekman's arrest for breaking into Web sites at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, including the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said Nancy Souza, spokeswoman for the paper. Some sentences were changed, and Gates' name was substituted for Diekman's.

The goal of the attack was to shut down the site and perhaps slow other Internet traffic. The worm defaced Web sites operated by the infected computers with the message: "HELLO! Welcome to http://www.worm.com! Hacked by Chinese!"
