    Default Hak5 Hacked

    xor,

    On July 20th, 2009 the server hosting Hak5.org and the Hak5 forums was hacked into and defaced via an exploit on a unrelated system. During this time the forum database was accessed and as such, passwords (which are linked to your email address) used for forum accounts have been compromised. Please login to hak5.org / forums / and change your password, more importantly if you used this password elsewhere you will need to change these passwords ASAP. We apologize for this inconvenience.

    hak5.org /forums /index.php ? showtopic=13730 The server hosting Hak5.org and the Hak5 forums was hacked.

    xor

    Change your passwords people if you share info site to site.
    At a loss for humorous rhetoric, today.

    Just burned his ISO, man that hurts. :-)

    It's also very sexist, or does it change if you are female?

    Why don't you just say pathetic n00b scum, at least it's PC? :-)

    Actually if you had read the thread on their site, it was.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    I don't think the root password for their billing system was though.

    Kinda funny really this happening to a security themed show... It's kinda like a fire station burning down.
