It didn't get hacked, it DOS'd.

PNAC probably sent out a squad of high-tech cybersoldiers to assassinate the would-be hackers and the Department of Disinfomation labled the whole thing a hoax so as to cover up the mass-murder.
 
2003-07-06 08:42:47 PM
We had one of the sites on our server defaced. All the guy did was guess the guys password.

Oh I am real scared guys. Come back with a real hack next time.

I think it's reasonable to think that a group of hackers would protect their website better. So, yeah, it's ironic.

"Amigajoe: How is it ironic?"

-That the hacking contest web site got hacked? Seems to fit the parameters to me...

Coincidence? You decide.
 
2003-07-06 08:46:34 PM
Whoops,

Some of the relatively unknown Web sites vandalized Sunday, such as one for a church in California, were converted into informal reporting mechanisms for identifying other hacked sites.

Oh no... not the debate about "Ironic" again!

Arrrgggh.... *dies a brutal self-inflicted death*

Or is it the grammar/punctuation/spelling debate?

It looks liked someone hacked aintitcool.com. Maybeeeeeeeeee.

Ironic:

Tennis is dominated by black women.
The most popular rapper is white.

"'Tards dominate the hacking world'"

Now that is ironic!

Hacking is for sissy boys... Try getting a job and raising a family.. Now that's a challenge.
 
2003-07-06 08:57:17 PM

1000's of sites get hacked everyday. This was so pathetic. I cant believe fark posted so much shiat about this.
 
2003-07-06 09:07:35 PM
Sorry Jin..... It was just a thought.. :)

Don't you guys see that this was made up by white hats who never intended to deface anything. They wanted sys. admins to patch their stupid weak windows boxes. Saying they were gonna hack the people, and having them patch everything and not get hacked is as good as actually hacking them and THEN! having everything get patched. It's excatly what motivates a white hat, getting retards to patch their lame arse machines. The sites that did get hacked are a direct result of Script-kiddies running canned hacking progs in an attempt to join in and become l33t.

I hope none of these stupid farking hackers work on cracking Photoshop's new internet activation.

Ironic:

Naming the national airport after the president that fired all of the air traffic controllers.

Reagon didn't fire them, he made them stop their strike because it jeopardized the economy.
 
2003-07-06 09:34:42 PM
funny stuff
 
2003-07-06 09:36:58 PM
Of course there wasn't a lot of hacks today. Mom made all of then clean their rooms after church.

wydok: Yes, and whoever did not return to work was subsequently fired.
 
2003-07-06 09:42:52 PM
bulldg4life,

Maybe it's just me, but when you don't show up for work, you get fired.
 
2003-07-06 09:43:11 PM
"Reagon didn't fire them, he made them stop their strike because it jeopardized the economy."


Um, I was there. All the PATCO workers who refused to end the strike were fired. They were hired back later.

So, that was "all of the air traffic controllers" then? How long did it take to train the new ones?

I understand they have rights as a union, but how many people would they screw over by continuing with their strike? The airlines themselves plus all of their employees (attendents, pilots, maintenance, security, etc.), the airport shop owners, oh and all of the people trying to fly.

My argument was that Reagan didn't actually "fire" the workers. It was more semantics than anything else.

Idiot. The vast, vast majority of website 'hacks' are stupid stuff like guessing the password on My Default Home Page type sites on Geocities and the like. WHOO WHOO y0u h4x0r3d gr4ndm4 1010101!!!!1! Encouraging this sort of thing doesn't make you a white hat -- it makes you a jerk. It'd be different if they filtered out this sort of thing, but eh.

Incidentally...I seem to recall the RIAA lobbying for the ability to do exactly what ISS is encouraging with this contest. I also seem to recall it being far less well received...
 
2003-07-06 09:55:10 PM
They should stick to responsible hacking, like getting those bastards at the RIAA every chance they get.

Whos website seems to be down right now. Ya.
 
2003-07-06 09:58:55 PM
That's why they were fired...because they jeopradized the economy and some continued the strike. Those that continued the strike were fired.
