ToughPigs hacked???

    ToughPigs is down. And every time I try to go to the website, instead of "ToughPigs, it says the website is titled "Hacked By Master Hax". And instead of any articles, it's just a white screen that reads "hacked by mohamad.xo".

    So, firstly, I want to know if any of the rest of you are having the same problem. And secondly, does anyone know if the website was actually hacked, or is it just down for maintenance. And last, if it was really hacked, do you know if this is something that we should be worried about, or is this something easily dealt with?

    I did a little bit of research. I didn't turn up much, but it seems like there's a few other websites that are currently saying they're Hacked by Master Hax, TP happens to be one of them. While many sites retain their original meta description, I see one site on Google had its meta description changed, and it would seem that this so-called Master Hax is an "Allah Messenger," so I guess these hacks are an act of Arab/Islamic cyber terrorism if it's in the name of Allah.

    Toughpigs hasn't addressed it yet, I hope their site gets back to normal soon. Don't know why a muppet fan site would be targeted by a hacker.

    Hey, SST's YouTube channel was once hacked and replaced with porn.

    Just looked on Toughpigs twitter and it looks like they know about it. They've replied to someone saying "We're aware of the issue and we're working on a resolution to the problem now"

    Wow. What are some of the other websites that have had this issue?

    None that I'm familiar with, but if you do a Google search of "Hacked my Master Hax," you'll see other sites that have that as their meta title, including TP, which is presently the first result.

    That's good. I'm glad nothing was lost. Although, i'm sure if something were lost than they would have back up files and whatnot.

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one who found TP hacked.

    Aaaaand it's gone again. Who did the Toughpigs crew tick off to get them hacked three times?

    For anyone unable to access our website, we've been informed that the server is down for emergency maintenance. We're hoping to have everything back to normal soon!
