MySpace Hacked? No It wasn’t!
Update: Next Web pointed out that that what has been reported is a standard error message used by MySpace since 2009. I know these are hard times of hoaxes and psychological terrorism driven by the recent hacks by Anonymous and LulzSec but I hope that the lesson will be learned. Probably it would be better, in times like these, to use clearer error messages. At any rate this is only the latest demonstration of what it means to be hacking in the time of Twitter: advertising an attack, too often before performing it, has become even more important than the effect of the attack itself.
As usual the hack was announced with an (Anonymous) tweet:
Following the link (http://www.myspace.com/modules/common/static/html/error.html) leads to a bad surprise, a page whose title is meaningful “All is wrong :(“. By the way www.myspace.com is currently unavailable.
We messed up our code so bad that even puppies and kittens may be in danger. Please turn back …now.
