According to Sophos Naked Security Blog, visitors of the website was greeted by a funny picture of a dog attempting to eat dog food painted on a wall. As of posting this article the offending image have been removed from the website.

The website defacement coincided with an important event for David Beckham as his wife Victoria Beckham just gave birth to their first daughter Harper Seven Beckham.

Security researchers at Sophos theorized that the defacement have resulted to no other malicious activity.

“I doubt that David Beckham is a dab hand with an HTML editor and cascading style sheets, and he probably hires other people to maintain his website and be responsible for its security”, said Graham Cluley, Senior Technology Consultant at Sophos.

According to The Register post the defacement of soccer websites is not new to the soccer world as this type of incident also happened to other football stars like Diego Maradona and Ronaldinho.
