    Apparently, a group called Pegglecrew just hijacked the subreddit /r/3dshacks . Image attached of what it looks like right now. Don't really have anything to say, other than it's SUPER annoying.

    EDIT: Screwed up the whole English thing. Thoughts got jumbled.
    EDIT 2: Looks like Pegglecrew hijacks subreddits fairly frequently. Hopefully nothing permanent is done (I don't know if it could be or not). We'll see.

    Went on and saw it. Thought it was a joke but its silly that they would pick a least popular one to get noticed over thousands of other subreddits.

    I suggest somebody hack their twitter handle. /s

    Also why out of all things, SeaBIOS? They could have been more creative. Like, I dunno, l33tb10s.

    Such a strange target. I'll never understand these small hackster groups.

    Lizard wannabe fangays. Nothing to worry about, they think they hit gold that the subreddit was hit, when they just want admin attention. Pretty sure reddit has a cached copy we can restore.

    They're like a Lizard Squad or something. Don't ask me why it's funny to them, they're obviously sociopaths. Or something. IDK.

    From reading through the twitter feed, it looks like previous hacks were done by compromising a mod and injecting CSS to the subreddit. As I suspected, it was done via a script (which by extension makes them script kiddies.) My bet is a mod used a crap password. People don't realize how fast a dictionary attack is when your password is one word.

    Their problem was that they weren't even HASHING passwords.

    It's back to normal now, but what I want to know is what exactly did they insert into the page and do we need to be worried about possible driveby exploits?

    If anything this can only affect serverside rather than reader side. Reddit will always have a cached copy but it wont change the fact that unless they find out who's compromised, it wont stop.
