What is the connection between Islam and photocopiers? Seems totally pointless.

My policy has always been to look at what they do, not to listen to what they say....I think we can agree these guys are hacker *******s and not to much matters to the site owners and members beyond that.":O}

The frontpage has been replaced on the site, but other things (like the forum) still look to be in place. As it's running phpBB as the forum software, I'd imagine it's probably a security issue within phpBB.

Don't use the same password for everything.

It's safer to write down a list of passwords, on a piece of paper, rather than keep them stored on your computer.

I was going to make a comment about the HTML they put up there looking like it'd come from something like frontpage. These are obviously people who haven't come across CSS yet...

My guess is it wasn't targetted, rather just a bunch of punks scouting the web for a vulnerability to exploit.

One of my sites was hacked by a punk - literally.

He uploaded a flier advertising a punk band's gig, and posted that image on various myspace pages. So, not only did he, apparently, give away his identity including a photo, I would have also known where to find him, and on what date. If only I wanted to go all the way to Malaysia just to give someone a slap.
