New Website Hacked!

As the headline reads, yes, that was a very interesting hack. At first, my computer was running slow after seeing the DarkeWorld page, and I engaged my virus scanner as a safety measure.

Then I began to wonder if this wasn\'t a promotional thing for Voxis, and I was curious as to whether I was taken in by an elaborate promotional hoax. Eventually I decided it was still a hack, because I couldn\'t imagine Flaming Fish would remove access to their general web site (news, board, audio stream, etc.), even for such an elaborate prank. Then again, I didn\'t know about the re-launch of the web site. Are you sure this wasn\'t a promotional stunt?

I looked around artists\' MySpace sites, looking for possible update information on the status of Flaming Fish, so that I could know for sure if a hack was involved (still seems strange to me that all this Voxis-related stuff would be part of the hack--hackers usually have their own ideas of what to replace the regular web site with, and it\'s not usually related to an associated artist).

I even went to the Gretchenland.com website (Gothic chick-metal) and asked around if they knew of a hack at Flaming Fish.

Totally confused over this...

Peace,

Jeff

Re:Hacked!
Yeah, I was confused myself.

Must have been a Christian hacker.

Re:Hacked!
LOL...

\"I\'m doing this because Jesus loves you, and so do I!\"

Seems silly, but I\'ve seen worse attitudes from professing Christians. Go figure.

Peace,

Jeff

Re:Hacked!
The \"hack\" was indeed entirely a promotional stunt for the release of the Voxis CD. It also made a more interesting transition to the new site than a simple \"website under construction message\". We just hope that more people enjoyed it than were irritated by it!

Re:Hacked!
Gee, now don\'t I feel as though I was at least initially taken in!
:blush:

Oh, well. I was a lot more worried, until I saw the message after the site came back up that the site was re-launched. Duh!

I\'m generally not so gullible. Good show! I\'ll be on my guard next time. :evil:

Peace,

Jeff

Re:Hacked!
Did anyone actually listen to the audio clip from the second page?
