Breaking News: Digg.com Hacked?

I checked digg.com and noticed something strange on their site. The front page contains articles that are filled up with the string, “09-F9-11-02-9D-74-E3-5B-D8-41-56-C5-63-56-88-C0“. Even the articles are “weird”. It took me a while after going through the posts in the front page to figure out that digg.com could have been hacked.

Some of the “posts” claims that digg.com started censoring articles and deleting posts. I’ll do more research on this and see what I can find.

5 minutes later, digg.com suspended their service. It’s obvious they are trying to fix the problem in the background. I was lucky to have collected a few screenshots.
