    12 hours everything still works fine but this morning (GMT +8 1000hrs) the front page of Sinodefence forum got that "Hack by Anonymous" thing, now only individual sub-section works...

    But why admin made no announcement?

    From where i am it only came back online like 10 minutes ago, but yeah very odd, hacked by anonymous and then la black screen with some links giving the names listed of combat companies from the US marine corps.

    So could this be the work of some rival forum trying to troll us or something?

    Everything seem to be working as normal now, but Sinodefence was indeed hacked and links provided to lists of personeel to various American military divisions.

    Looks like some American military fanboy with some borrowed hacking tools felt butthurt at something someone said so decided to attack the site. How pathetic.

    But why publish lists of American marines? And they were very comprehensive too, I wonder about the privacy of the lists (had everything from names, assigned divisions etc, states of residence I think).

    Hmm, perhaps I spoke too soon when I said everything was back to normal as the site seem to be very slow right now, at least for me.

    I truly wondered what brought them here. We badmouthed the Great Stars and Stripes too much?

    Its entirely possible that this is just the usual anarchist/stoner crowd that boycotts scientologists just for the 'lulz', and the list was just to frame another group just to mess with us, but they usually stay within their own little self-contained circle of internet culture and are more often than not ignorant or intimidated by a serious forum like ours.
