Pro Football Talk Gets The Hacker Treatment

Friday, February 20, 2009

I've always wondered what makes hackers tick. Is it the feeling that they are ruining someone's day/livelihood, or are they just gigantic a**holes? Either way, one of those great people has hacked into Pro Football Talk, and has left this message for readers of the site....

Very clever. Brooks from SbB is thinking that it's a password issue, but you would hope that Word Press would have some protection measures in place. The above page has been taken down but an error still remains on the page. Let's hope PFT hasn't lost everything.

Chris Mortenson definitly broke into Florio's site. And he left the message for Florio.

Wasn't that Sean Connery's answer on Celebrity Jeopardy years ago?

Everything is spelled correctly so that eliminates Emmitt Smiff as a suspect.

Maybe it was another DOS attempt perpetrated by Shrutebag?
