Rifftrax Site Hacked

I just went to check up on something on Rifftrax.com, and I found this. Foulplay? Looks like it, to me. Fortunately, it seems like a pretty small, easily remedied attack, and the front page seems to be the only one effected, but still. Hopefully it’ll be fixed before you get there. Perhaps Tom Cruise has figured out how to use The Internets? Xenu, have mercy on Mr. Nelson!

UPDATE: It’s been fixed. The haxXxXxing was confirmed in this thread. If the thought crossed your mind at all, apparently all your billing information and whatnot is safe. That was easily the weakest “hack” that I’ve ever seen. At least he used correct grammar.

  1. Yes, the site got hacked but only for about … 30 seconds :) It was a security issue that has been secured as far as we can tell. The person simply emptied the table containing the display ads and changed the welcome text – novice stuff, really – but none of our credit card information was compromised. That information is kept in a completely different, securely encrypted system.

    Rest assured I’m keeping a close eye on this now, and if any other issues should arise, they will be fixed immediately.

  2. I’m glad to hear that they didn’t do any significant damage to you guys. Thanks for the clarification, Erik.
