Life At Zero Gravity

Just another WordPress.com weblog

1malaysia.com is Hacked

Just a couple of weeks after being launched, the rather ambitious 1Malaysia.com social networking project that claimed it was ready to take on social networking giant Facebook, finds itself taken over by hackers instead.
Late yesterday evening, members of our forums noticed that the site’s landing page was defaced by devilc0de.org. At time of writing, the site is still down. We do not want to speculate on what happened, but rumours is the site was built using off the shelf turnkey scripts which were not properly patched. The last we checked, the site had gathered about 5,000 members.
