Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of self-important neo-Barleyesque startup fellating bellends. Pass the popcorn!
TechCrunch has been hit by potty-mouth hackers for the second time in 24 hours. The second hack (image below) features a foul-mouth rant aimed against site founder Michael Arrington. It also includes a link to the same online smut and warez-peddling Torrents site "promoted" via the previous attack. Arrington, the crackers …
Why do these hackers never do anything cool with their defacements? If they're going to go to all the trouble of carrying out the attack, and even risk jail time in doing so, you'd think they'd spend 10 minutes knocking up something a little cool to put on the front page, rather than some pissy little rant shoehorned into the top of the HTML.
If these guys are the equivalent of little kids scrawling their tags on overpasses, I want to know where the Banksy of hacking has got to.
To be fair old bean, I rather liked the oh so subtle hack of the FBI some years ago. The page looked much like it used tto pre hack, except the image of the seal of the president of the United States had been replaced by the version used by the Ramones. Reported by the reg, it made me at least, laugh like a drain. Apparently it had been their for a while unnoticed.
The Banksy of hacking?
Your reading it - The Register was actually hacked about 5 years ago by a team of elite pony trekking Guatemalans with a penchant for IT news and a passable command of the English Language.
They've continued to mis-inform the average Brit, Antipodean and occassional "I'm feeling lucky" stray American visitor since then, updating the site via a battered blackberry whenever they can get a signal.
The original site owners are either still trying to rest control from these wretched miscreants, or down the pub - most likely the hacker. Nice work if you can get it.
