"Please note that AwakeNetwork was defaced this morning by an Islamic militant group. I am working to ensure this won't happen again but if you find that it has, please email an admin immediately"

Really??? What was done?

Yes, really. Middle East Cyber Army. Tough to do smiling meditation on that. Thanks to Shaun for alerting me promptly, and quite freaky, actually, that I was working at 8am on a Sunday morning.

The front page turned into an advertisement for a group calling itself the Middle East Cyber Army. Fortunately, the rest of the site was left intact.

BTW the alert at the top says, " please email an admin immediately," but doesn't tell us how to email the admins (and in any case would not be visible in case of a really bad hack).

Naturally, having an email link in that banner would be bad mojo. Many have my email already, or have contact with someone that does, or still have the mail they used to correspond with me to get onto the site (awakenetworkorg at gmail).

Apparently this busy group has hacked the websites for Auckland University and the Little Rock School District.
