3D Science News is a news site that provides Science News in … 3D! The idea behind this venture is, in part, that 3D may make science more fun and interesting. The site has featured talks by PZ Myers and all sorts of other cool stuff. You wear the funny 3D glasses (which cost about a dollar each) and yo yo’s and bats and stuff come flying out at you while you learn science. In fact, the producers of the site have asked me to do a bit for them, which will happen some time over the next two months. Which I guess makes me a yo yo.
So if you want to see what a hacked site looks like, maybe you can go there now and have a look. In case the site gets unhacked first, this is what it looks like:
If you enter “ChagLar & H.T.T.” into Google you can find a couple of other sites they’ve apparently hacked as well. Of course, you shouldn’t encourage them by looking, but given the science link, I thought you’d like to know.
Was this a creationist attack or just a coincidence that hackers from one of the most creationist countries in the world (Turkey) replaced a science education site with the icon of the Caliphate? … we will probably never know.
