It has just come to my attention that Spyware Warrior had been hacked today by a Portugese hacking crew. The hacking crew defaced, or changed the front page, to give a political message of their choosing.

Looks like the PHPBB website was hacked today as well with an awstats hack. Not a good day for open source and support sites.

Looks like the same gang possibly nailed all of these sites and more in one prolonged attack...
