I didn't even notice at first because I usually go straight to the forums and ignore the home page, but I get the same thing. What is going on here??

Eh, the effort seems like a waste when the majority of us can't read the message (Arabic?).

Is this supposed to be an April fool's day joke?

I was curious so I translated it to see what it said, and google gave me this:

No to terrorism! Together against terrorism

Yahya security Tunisian greeting all Tunisian security forces and the army

I am a Muslim, I am against terrorism, I am against the traitors and do not represent me Daash

I have no idea how accurate the translation is, but regardless of what it says I hope it is fixed soon.

the google search "hacked by ariani" seems to show that this is not the only site to have been hacked...

So, that's why that second page (redirecting to commercials!) is popping out from time to time, for no apparentr reason!

Google Translate usually gets the gist right. I always wonder why these people bother hacking random websites like this

i am a little boat

am i the only one seeing some arabic text and hearing something like a 20's soviet marching theme when going to asexuality.org/home

WTF??

Luckily it was a horrible hacking job, and one can just change the url to asexuality.org/en and you'll get into the forums, but the front page

Whaaaaaaaat??

Yeah, I just saw that and google translated the text, which said something to do with saying no to terrorism and then something about Tunisia. Why they chose this site is beyond me.

Yeah, I got the same translation, probably because I also used google.

Thankfully most of could easily circumnavigate around it.

I'd like to research more about other sites affected and what the hacker's intention is.

That's my question, too... why this site? That logic makes no sense...

Wondering what the hacker's motive is, what's the point of posting an anti-terrorist message to AVEN?

its nothing personal, the attack was probably automated. often times they use bots to discover sites with vulnerabilities and use a toolkit to compromise it...

I don't know whether it's sad or ironic that the hackers think the best way to promote an anti-terrorism message is with terrorism.

This music is surprisingly enjoyable. I am slightly worried about how easily influenced I am, but it makes me want to march somewhere and shout at things.

'No more cinnamon jelly beans! Libertad, libertad!'

Honestly I'm thinking about suggesting that we keep the music on the homepage once this is fixed

Thank you DeltaX for linking to the Site Comments discussion.

I am currently on mobile and cannot move this post. For the moment this thread will be locked (In Asexual Musings and Rantings). However once I have a proper internet connection I will move the thread to site comments and have the two topics merged.

Locking the thread.

They targeted many sites, not just AVEN, the sites seem almost random so I would say it is probably some program being run to pick and hack the sites.

Does this song ever end? (I'm dancing to it in my seat.)

So far my favorite song this person used is from This site ^_^ wait :mellow: Is it wrong I have a favorite? :unsure:This also is my runner up if anyone wants to listen :D

Edit: For future entertainment I pulled the Music they are using off the site for you. Enjoy the easy listening of the Tunisia's national anthem ^_^

And here is my personal favorite one

I do have to agree, whoever hacked this is trying not to promote terrorism yet they did so themselves.

I listened to the music till the end, it was rather good.
