Trump.com hacked to say "thank you" to Jon Stewart
Donald Trump's corporate website was hacked to say 'thanks' to Jon Stewart and The Daily Show, which will air tonight for the last time with Stewart as host. The hacked version of the site - which was removed Monday afternoon but has been archived here- said, in part:
We are writing you today via Mr Trump’s website because, seeming, the only way to get anyone to pay attention any more is to grease a Presidential candidate’s website...
Mr Stewart, we at @TelecomixCanada would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the many happy years of quality journalism and entertainment you and your team have undertaken at Comedy Central. Know, Sir, that your steadfast dedication to the irony and power of Truth has inspired a generation which we ourselves now serve...
Well that’s about it, other than to join you all in celebrating America’s first openly Asshole Presidential Candidate. Godspeed Mr. Trump.
TelecomixCanada posted a news release on pastebin.com explaining that no harm had been done to the server, no information had been leaked, and that they also didn't repair "the problems allowing access to trump.com in the first place."
