Hacked again
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, January 04, 2007

Apparently QandO is the target of a sustained hacking attack. Yesterday they got to the blogging software. This morning they went after the ftp. In both cases Dale was able to catch it and frustrate it fairly quickly.

Not sure of the reason we're a target at the moment, but we appreciate your patience concerning the site going down.

If you notice something peculiar that just doesn't look right, drop me a quick email. I'll get ahold of Dale and we'll get right on it. Right now, it seems at least the two previous avenues of attack have been closed. But hey, not being an expert in this stuff, I'm sure there are a bunch more avenues they can attempt to exploit.

Anyway, thanks for your patience and help in thwarting these odious cretins who have nothing better to do, apparently, than attack and destroy someone else's property.

Like I mentioned in the chat earlier, these are kids in developing countries such as turkey who are all new to the internet. So they have the collective internet maturity level of us in the early 90s.

Basically they are just n00bs.

It’s because of Jon Henke....anyone group that would tolerate such a Neo-Fascist/Racist will naturally attract the ire of the righteous....

Well, Goldstein’s Protein Wisdom is down, too.

There’s quite a few possible suspects for that one.

As Alex Jones might say. if this can be traced to the Middle East, could it be the start of a terrorist cyber battle for the control of the minds of our children and prescious body fluids?

Has anyone been able to interpret the comment left by the hacker?

I am not sure if it was Spanish or Portugues, but the closest I could come to translating it was some nonsense like "not for entertainment, for knowledge".

It may as well have said "I am not clever enough to create anything, so I’ll just break other people’s stuff"

Funny how we always get hacked immediately after I start working for a Republican politician. Just sayin’.
