On December 8th, a pair of sites were defaced by "fux0r Inc." Of interest on this defacement was the following text and linked information.
-- Hotlink.MTVN.com was hacked by The-Rev of fux0r Inc. The-Rev (The-Rev@ihateclowns.com): MTV started out as a way to express creativity throughout the world thru the magic of music. But today the magic is gone and what were left with is corporations seeking the lowest common denominator. What I mean by that is MTV pushes the mainstream to create an audience thats more profitable instead of what used to be creative. My proof is here. Look below. What your seeing is HTML taken by http://hotlink.mtvn.com. My hacked username for that site is The-Rev, the password for that username is: fireyouradmin ...What's behind the password protection of hotlink.mtvn.com is the advertiser network for the MTV family of channels. Click on Research then Audience Profiles. See what role MTV Is taking to classify and profit off you. MTV is big business, and big brother. And for all who love satellite pirating, theres a special hidden treat with sat info below as well. So the next time you see Total Request Live and see your favorite shoe being advertised, you'll know why. [..]Mirror: http://www.safemode.org/mirror/2001/12/08/www.virginrecords.com/mirror.html
