- For the Wikipedia term, please see Wikipedia:Vandalism.
The name "vandal" is from the Vandals, a tribe that attacked and damaged the city of Rome in the 455 CE.
Websites can also be vandalized. A perfect example of website vandalism is Wikipedia. As Wikipedia is powered by wiki software, this makes it easier for vandals to do vandalism since pages can be changed by everyone. This usually gives people who are doing good edits a problem.
However, not all vandalism is bad. Some vandalism is to let people see their talent of art. The vandals do not have enough money to buy an art gallery and therefore using public property to allow people to admire their talent.
