Hackers Attack eBaumsWorld

Nick Farrell writes on The Inquirer:

EBAUMSWORLD, a site which offers cash for funny content, has been walloped by a series of hacks and attacks for the last 48 hours in a row about copyright over one of the videos it published.

According to an editorial published at the site, the attacks included a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, malicious attempts at gaining access to restricted parts of the site, spamming forums and chat rooms and hacking into admin restricted accounts.

There have also been numerous personal threats made against eBaum's World staff members and its offices were vandalized.
