Security threats - password theft

BASS ORCHESTRATOR Skrillex is offering his fans just a blank website thanks to a hacker group called Eboz that took it down for him.

Skrillex makes the sort of music that teenagers play to annoy their parents, and makes anyone older than that generation say, "Well, it's just noise."

We've linked one of his music tracks below. Make sure you move any china from the edge of any surfaces as you are about to experience a dubstep bassline. They are loud, rumbling and deep.

According to the eHacking News website, the Turkish group Eboz was behind the attack, which was actually a defacement.

We met Eboz at the end of last year when it took over a number of websites with Pakistani or .pk domain names. Then as now it replaced content on targeted websites with an image of some penguins.

Some text accompanied the image, and it rea, "Always there for me in my homeboys friend" and "Have not shot me with every breath", according to the eHacking News translation.

Skrillex does not seem too bothered about the attention. In a message he laughed off the downtime, saying, "Damn somebody hacked/jacked http://Skrillex.com haha" and "Stuff like this happens quite often".

A poster on Skrillex's feed names Eboz as the hacker group, and offers a nicer translation of the text. "I am always with my bros," it said. "is there anybody not by my side in every breath?"

Some commentators suggest that Skrillex should be pleased to have earned the attention of such a famous group. He acknowledged that it is "definitely memorable". µ
