Windows 7: TechCrunch Hacked Twice in 24 Hours.

27 Jan 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
TechCrunch Hacked Twice in 24 Hours.

TechCrunch has been the victim of a cyber-attack for a second time in less than 24 hours. Following the new incident, an offensive and taunting message was left on the front page of the technology blog.

It seems that someone has a personal vendetta against the world's second most popular technology blog and its founder, Michael Arrington. The attacker appears to be particularly bothered by an interstitial ad introduced by the website.
