    Imageshack got hacked by something called the "Anti-Sec Movement". It replaced all images with this:

    This is so bad and so funny at the same time.

    Seems fine here, just checked a few pics. Must have been fixed very quickly.

    Yea, I see what you mean from that thread. Though most other pics I've checked (including some of my own) are fine. Very strange. [​IMG]

    Never read it ... don't plan on it. I saw this earlier but yeah some images still do work. Maybe imageshack hacked themselves. [​IMG] (yeah not likely)

    Well, I think it's gone now. That was quite a scare for some I suppose. 'Everybody is getting owned' huh? I wonder if they purposely returned control to Imageshack or Imageshack retook control.

    I'm surprised you guys fell for that....
    Check the source of that image, it doesn't point to Imageshack. (http://ec.mashable.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/imageshackhack.gif)

    It's a hoax.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Chris

    Edit: I guess they did hack it, follow the link back to the blog, the article is there. Although I'm still a bit skeptical.

    If it was a hoax, they had certainly got us. Well, I wouldn't blame you for being any bit skeptical, incidents like these are sometimes used for publicity or other reasons.

    It wasn't a hoax at all. The moonshell 2 FAQ had those images and they did link to imageshack.

    My guess is the original poster saved the pic elsewhere and uploaded it. If imageshack fixed it, the pic would revert back to whatever it was.

    Why do people do this? What purpose does it serve? What do they gain by hacking a website...with lots of pictures?

    Wow I didn't even know. I host all my news post pictures on there until I get back home and I can use my photobucket account. At least its back to normal now.
