Lloyd's of London Shuts Down Website After Two Hack Attacks

London-AP -- Two attacks in one day is enough for Lloyd's of London.

The company has shut down its Web site after it was hacked in the morning and afternoon.

A spokeswoman for the famed insurance market says the hacker replaced some text. She says the attacks have had no effect on Lloyd's other systems and they took down the site as a ``preventative measure.''

The hacker hasn't been identified. No word on when the site might be back up.
