I was browsing through my RSS feed when I came across a curious (to say the list) post from TechCrunch, when they mention they have been hacked.
I figured it could be Michael Arrington jumping the gun on April’s Fools again (and setting a new world record at the same time…), but after reading the comments it looks like the most popular tech blog on the web was indeed hacked.
Apparently for some time whoever tried to access TechCrunch.com was redirected to another site. You can get more details from the comments.
The site seems to be working normally now, but it will be interesting to read their follow up on the issue, mainly to understand what kind of vulnerability was exploited.
