I agree with you, it sucks that your favorite site got hijacked.

I doubt the perpetrators did that out of hate about the particular site, they probably don't even know what the site is about. Most likely spoiled
kids with nothing better to do than port scanning for vulnerable computers. People handling public servers will know what I'm talking about, you get
your logs filled with hacks attempt daily.
I even got to monitor in real time a script kiddy breaking into one of my computers with a security bug that I waited too long to patch. They are not
that skilled, they just downloaded the prog from FTP hackers site and let the thing do the job for them. I managed to trace his location and it was a
dumb teenager doing this from his mom's basement. Not smart, I tell you.
