Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Microconnectors.com has been hacked and displays only the following message:

"American hackers hacking Yugoslav sites,ISPs(ptt.yu)!!!Becouse this site is hacked by YU hackers VIrusKrew"

As usual, grammar wasn't a high priority but the basic message seems fairly clear. It would seem our Yugoslav cousins are unhappy about American hackers picking on their country's sites.

Hacking Microconnectors was unlikely to be very difficult. What are microconnectors anyway? It seems not many others know either because "microconnectors" holds the unusual position of not being registered for any domain except .com. ®
