According to the admins, expect a formal response from Arn later about this situation.
Hacker, it;s over.
I'm going to close this until someone like Arn or one of the admins are prepared to give an answer.
MacRumors Live Being Hacked
MacRumors Live has been broken into. We sincerely apologize, and are working swiftly to remedy the situation.
UPDATE (1PM EST): Our coverage is over. Arn will post a more formal response later, however rest assured that the site takes this incident very seriously.
For now, please visit the following excellent sites for live coverage of the Macworld keynote (no particular order):
Any idea if the feed will be back up before the end of the keynote?
I'm in support of the suspension of MacRumorsLive until the hack is fixed.
If it would help solve the situation faster than I agree with this statement.
I'm really pleased it's been hacked - it made me realise that Engadget's feed is a damn site better.
Please atleast get the lid on the stupid feed!
I think it's gotten to the point that they don't have a choice...
There is a very long thread over at 4chan about this. Not even going to link to it.
Pretty appalled at some of the comments that went out on the hacked feed. Pathetic, tbh.
Is there anyway to pinpoint the perpetrator? I think he/she should be severely punished, no one should do this to MR .
Yes. He's registered on this forum.
I hope they can finger the dips**** responsible, though I doubt that will happen.
Pretty bad, that too.
Whoever dropped the ball with the implementation at MR and allowed such a widely viewed stream to be so badly defaced also needs a pretty hefty slap, IMHO.
Didn't the hacker link to "matt's blog?"
To the hacker. Thanks for ruining an otherwise awesome liveblog.
Comments like this are uncalled for on the board at this time
If you really feel that way... please feel free to exit
Woof, Woof Dawg
My thoughts exactly.
IP Ban? From the looks of it it seems it's more than one person that's ruining it
EDIT: Please close the live blog. There are some distubring pictures
Wow, I'm very disappointed. I had my kids in the room while I was watching, very not cool at all.
Isn't it offline already?!
I appreciate what you're saying but I wasn't being flippant - I seriously think it's better. I meant it as more of a tip for others looking for somewhere else to go (and something for MR to consider for next time - the MR feed was a little dull and quite tricky to follow).
