    Web defacements as a form of hacktivism are rarely archived and thus mostly lost for systematic study. When they find their way into web archives, it is often more as a by-product of a larger web archiving effort than as the result of a targeted effort. Aside from large collections there also exists a small scene of community-maintained cybercrime archives that archive hacked web sites, some of which are hacked in a hacktivist context. It is the purpose of this article to give an overview of the state and possibilities of using both archives for research. Such research may include qualitative and quantitative data analysis from a media and social studies perspective.
