Thanks Kermi. And I apologize for having jumped into conclusions.
From now on a large part of your life will be spent finding and correcting your own mistakes.
And if you are lucky and land yourself a good job, a whole lot more time will be spent finding and correcting other people's mistakes.
That has to be good, no?

wow! first time i have witnessed a #@k3r$ 4tt4(k!!!
i mean it is serious but, really, first time for me!
I always think things like this are more annoying than serious. I mean, maybe they are. In truth, tho, it just seems to me a desperate cry for attention. Someone needs a hug.
As if anyone is going to trust haxorz to manage their site security. So there was a security flaw in the site, not like this site handles classified information or personal data.
Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.
Let's just hope a few smarties on this forum go down the "punisher movie" sort of story-line
All it did was tempt me into minoring in security... that or play Rainbow 6
These "look-at-me-I-can-hack-a-site" aren't that scary. What's scary is the people who hacks a site silently and unnoticed to spread bad code/scripts.
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
So they just want to be famous!
Better still, since they did not do something really harmful, besides defacing the main page.
But such harmless attempts prove to be useful for site administrator
am I too inexperienced to judge??
