Well that was weird.

So I suggest that we start a new thread for images/cartoons of mohamed that prophet dude that people get so worked up over that they need to fire bomb this forum for really no reason.

on behalf of Islam...I'd like to apologize for such idiocy. What the hackers did was very non-Islamic, they were careless digital extremists without any thought about whether or not their actions would be effective for their cause. lamerssss

some supposedly Islamic online group named "Sabatoq" or something hacked this site because someone (a long time ago..?) made a comic image of the Prophet Mohammad.

It was a server hack rather than a specifically Sijun one, and it was one of those undirected script-based exploits as far as we can tell.

It edited any file starting with "index" or "home" etc, and then deleted all files starting with "login" and anything in a "log" directory.

It was easy to restore everything from the backup, but we decided to completely reinstall the server anyway. Just in case.

When I clicked on any link on the home page it took me to a hack page.
It was black with some red logo at the top. The text said that they respect our christ and we are terrible because we make cartoons of Mohammed and that god will curse us. About 3 or 4 sentences.

Then the entire thing was written again in turkish, I think.

I agree about Turkey in general.

The word Turkey was actually on the page. I couldnt tell what the language was, so since the word Turkey was there I assumed thats what it was.
