Asus hacked and down
You've 14m3 k1dd13 to thank for it
Taiwanese motherboard manufacturer Asus has seen its dotcom site hacked and down for the whole of today. Instead of the usual colourful layout, we are instead treated to a message from the charming and eloquent young man that hacked the site. It reads:
defaced by 14m3 k1dd13 fuck hackphreak and that stupid dickhead rloxley
We take it that our old friend 14m3 k1dd12 doesn't like hackphreak or rloxley (actually we met rloxley a coupla months ago and weren't too sure we liked him either). Asus has pulled the comment off the site but as of 6pm GMT has yet to get the site back up. It seems possible that the hacker may have done a bit of damage while he was there.
Why he chose Asus to broadcast his message is unsure, unless of course the gaming community is important to him. Asus' Taiwanese site is fine and dandy. ®
