    I just went on to the AACA site as I do every day and it's been hacked by some Syrian rebel group. Went on to the main AACA page and they posted "down for maintenance". I guess antique car lovers are a threat or something!

    There was a simular post @ Bangshift.
     

  4. They hacked a college radio station in Oswego NY because it had the same call letters as a TV station in DC. Who knows why they picked the AACA.

    Doubt if the targets were political. They just ran some software exploits against those sites, and found some that weren't patched up to date. May not have even been the group they said they were, could have been someone else with some other motivation.

    Just a part of a much larger issue apparently: New York Times and Twitter hacked

    Long story short, an indian support guy opened the wrong email, which allowed these a-holes to access all the passwords to other things

    That site is still hacked. Goes right to spam as soon as you open it.

    A hacker group hit a lot of automotive sites in the last few days. We were one of them, but thankfully our security held up. It did, however, result in us being placed on Norton and McAfee's black list by mistake. It's fixed now.
