has been hacked!

Credit to CopyBlogger for being the first to bring it to my attention. Seems that someone who calls himself net_devil has managed to infiltrate the problogger job board and switch the index page out.

problogger Hacked

Let’s hope that Darren and the crew over at Problogger get things back under control soon. At the moment, it doesn’t seem to have seeped over onto the main problogger site or perhaps isn’t anymore. Hard to tell where we are in the timeline here.

Just for the record, I don’t really see the point in screwing around like that. Sure you get the traffic from the site for a while to see whatever it is your pushing. In this case it’s anti-israel, anti-U.S rhetoric. Please spare me the sermon.

UPDATE: As of 4:53 p.m. CDT the site is down. I only get a 403 forbidden apache error. I would imagine that they’ve gotten control back and are trying to sort out the mess left behind.

UPDATE: Darren has a post up on ProBlogger that explains what happened and to what extent.  It would seem that there were at least three of Darren’s sites affected and that the attack was aimed at the host and not the sites in particular.
