Well I would tend to agree with you, except for the fact that the 3 sites
did not use any SQL, they were all simple html sites with very little

I did find something that referenced hidden field injections as well, but
again, none of the sites had hidden fields.

This is why I am puzzled as to what could be going on here.

A look at the links for gives a
large list of sites they have defaced. a google search will also give a list
of sites defaced.
they all seem to be sql injection attacks, which is bad site scripting. Have
your script sanitise all user supplied data to stop sql injections from

The best way, rebuild the scripts with an abstraction layer between the
actual db calls and the served documents, make sure what comes from the
served documents is not executed as queries, but is inserted as data, then
you can see where the actual attack comes from and charge that person for
their illegal activities.
