Mograph.net hacked

I really don’t understand why people do these things, but apparently mograph.net has been hacked. I’m still trying to find more details. If you know what happened, please share in the comments.

A similar thing actually happened to me once. I was the admin of the message board for Midlake, and the site was taken hostage until I upgraded the board. Kind of an aggressive way to encourage keeping current with your software, don’t you think?

I was wondering what the hell was going on… thanks for the heads up! in the mean time… new HP spots by motion theory. Mr. Burnett & Mr. Mark Cuban are on this update. http://feed.stashmedia.tv/feed/2006/7/18/motion-theory-for-hp-again.html

Yeah, the Mark Cuban one is my favorite so far.

bne

Mine as well. Looks like they’re really getting the hang of this concept. These are a lot more fluid… Will be interesting to see the Pharrell one in a few days.

Apparently a second round of attacks is underway. Hopefully things will be resolved soon, and all the content will be recovered.

Steve

I’m confused as to why people hack a site like mograph.net.

thomwill

whats the bit about “leave us alone” thats on the front page now?

pixel_pimp

I think it has something to do with the secret message in the code Trapcodes Shine!

It’s some thirteen yr old boys on summer vacation

Now there is a message up about EZWarez.org or something:

“Here’s your password
Admin:IPSSupport
Password:owned

please leave us alone at EZWarez.org as you reporting us or whatever we used proxy’s you wasted your time.

Continue to stop back and show the love,
The0n3”

http://www.ezwarez.org is down for some reason

They better not be based in Holland. Hacking mograph is like setting your neighbours’ house on fire while they’re having a party. There is absolutely no reason to hack the site.

Coen

This sucks, why would they do that? I guess we’ll hear an explanation soon when everything is back to normal

opus13

“please leave us alone at EZWarez.org” &
“Continue to stop back and show the love”

wtf? those are rather strange things to say. they want their hit rate to grow? they want to be friends?

Paul Ducco

I don’t understand it either. it MUST be school holiday time. I know of at least 3 fairly high-profile sites that have been targeted.

It’s a scary thought that these are people who will most likely one day turn 18 … and then be programming the majority of internet and getting paid for it. Can’t we go back to film and television?

Nextexit

It totally sucks…..but a positive side effect is that I am finally getting some work done ;)

da nny

He is the owner of ezwarez.org and the person that hacked mograph.net. I have verified this by contacting the user “the0n3” on the ezwarez.org pretending to be interested in supplying warez. I’ll post our entire conversation in mograph when it’s back up.

ooooh, SNAP!

chowdaddy

Let the games begin.

Steve

Woooo! It’s skype time!

Is a “Lot” like a trailer park address in the States?

I was waiting for the beav to cold strike like a cobra

Man, now things are going to get interesting. Maybe he needs the worlds largest collection of free magazine subscriptions.

If that’s for real, it aint nothing but a thang – we got peeps in Ohio. We can get this straightened out real fast.

…or he needs a group of about 20 mographers on his doorstep to tattle to his mommy. (or a kick in the head, whichever is easiest)

aspekt

I signed him up for publishers clearing house.

Seth

I had no work to do yesterday. Mograph couldn’t have been hacked at a worse time.

mamurphy

Well, looks like Mr. Handell is really interested in about 20 different free Insurance publications soon to be delivered…..

BOY:1:DER

I remember from college pranks places where you could order people a ton of free stuff. Maybe Mr. Handell has been having issues with relieving himself and needs a new cathoder or two.

steve

yeah the first day I try to log onto that site in a year and it took me 20 minutes to figure out it was hacked. First it said “we’re back online”, and then I hit refresh and it had that whole bit about being owned. *confusion*

Lot 14 – LOL – now who’s owned?

aspekt

well it’s also a good thing he contacted all those credit repair organizations. he should be in good hands with them. not to mention that hell be getting several degrees from accredited online universities. and with all the new book clubs he’s just enrolled in I’m shure he’ll have enough to keep him busy.

I’m sure that chief of police, John Vermillion would love your call

How about Dan Robinson, reporter extraordinaire…

Okay guys, I had the ultimate suggestion. Put a whole bunch of really nice free stuff on craigslist and put his address for where people need to pick stuff up and his telephone number for contact! He would have an army of bargain hunters that would never leave him alone!!

SP3KTR

I don’t know if anyone else hit up his host http://www.syxe.com yesterday, but I left this little bit in his “art” thread

All right, guys. I’m going to close comments on this post now. We’ve made our point, and I think the Mograph admins have things under control.

I’m not trying to be a prick, I’m just trying to exercise a little restraint. Thanks.

carniceria

i just hope mograph’s content is safe – that would be such a shame if it were lost.
