Okay, Who’s The Hacker Messing With Our Gaming Sites?
As is usually the case when one gets home after a long day, it’s customary to sit back, relax, and visit every website that you frequent, upon returning home. Or maybe it’s just me who does that.
But today when I returned home from my long day at university, I was greeted with a slightly different version of the site I know and love. Behold, above, the NAG website. Freshly hacked by some pro-Syrian hacker who thought that NAG was a worthy target.

Apparently they weren’t the only local site either, with word reaching us that local techie site Carbonite had also been hacked.
So that’s two South African websites, both gaming / tech related, hacked by some pro-Syrian movement.
Would you at least tell us why?
Seriously, tell me what you hope to achieve, hacker person? You’re honestly just annoying people and making us not want to care about what’s going on there. And are you not South African? Don’t tell me that if we had some sort of domestic dispute here, people would go and hack The Escapist or something, with South African flags and the like.
Meanwhile, the local sites in question are still suffering infrequent hack attempts. We’re not sure which other sites have been affected just yet, but we’re sure that there’s more to this story to be revealed in time.
UPDATE: Word has it that the hacking has gone international now. Great. I’m not sure whether to feel lucky or left out.
