    well...macgamefiles.com has been hacked. I can't find any information on this worm, but does this mean the site is hosted on a PC?!

    edit: insidemacgames.com gone too...but the rubbish that appears seems to indicate it's on RedHat linux.

    Back to the schoolyard bantering... "whoever smelt it delt it" (the spelling is as is to emphasize the rhyme).

    "whoever posted it toasted it"

    Did you hack the site?

    Ok... Just joking. Why would someone do that? Is it a glory thing?

    looks like those sites were hit by the Santy worm.

    well, at least the lack of creativity can be excused because of how effective this worm was. seems to be more of a "proof of concept" type thing really, it wasn't at all terribly malicious was it?

    anyone know what other sites were hit by the worm?

    Netcraft.com says....hosted on a linux box since April 23rd, 2004. Before that it was on MacOSX.

    http://www.asylumon5thstreet.com/ was. Another comic I read was also nailed, but it said something in Russian (or some other Cyrillic-alphabet-using language) so I don't know what it said, but I think it was something else that got that site.
