On December 8th, a pair of sites were defaced by "fux0r Inc." Of interest on this defacement was the following text and linked information.

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 My hacked username for that site is The-Rev, the
password for that username is: fireyouradmin

...What's behind the password protection of 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.
