    So you think they're targeting a news website in the middle of Iowa?

    A lot of the time they are targeting a range of IP addresses. Where they find vulnerabilities, they attack them. That's how hacking works.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    Or more likely it's just a rogue advertisement that's triggering it.

    Re: KCCI website... Hacked?

    PS3 Network was down at 6 this morning. Wonder if they had something to do with that.
