Could not find any information but pingdom does now report it has down. Here is a copy of the source code of the hacked page I first saw :


<head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us"> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252"> <title>..:: This Web Site Has Been Hacked By Iranian Cyber Army ::.. </title> </head>

The lack of respect for modern web standards and accessibility here is shocking. No alt tags? All in-line styles with no CSS? And no XHTML?

Shame on them.

saya kira orang-orang itu memang tidak butuh styles, apa yang mereka butuhkan adalah pesan dapat tersampaikan, in any language sesingkat mungkin

mowjcamp was apparently a reformist overseas-based website that was hacked in the same way.



Some details in here too:


Seems a DNS hijacking for sure.

I found no website reporting any information... Anyone?

And Google's take on the "Iranian Cyber Army":


You're calling out that a search for "indian cyber army" is performed more often than one for "iranian cyber army"?

Are you new to the Internet?

This feels like the 9/11 of internet

Who knows who it really is. Could be some random kiddies in Des Moines.

Or some random kitties in da mines.
