Tech-Artists Hacked?

Hey, I just went to http://www.tech-artists.org... And it seems they've been hacked, it seems quite strange to hack a 3D animation community forum, not exactly the most righteous target, does anyone know any other details?

Its probably an automated hack, making use of a weakness in that particular forums code. My website was hacked a few month ago, through my wordpress blog. I just think they wrote a bot to search the web for sites with that weakness and replace all the index.* files or something relatively harmless.

Its still really stupid though. But I guess some people get a kick out of it, or it might even have a 'higher' purpose than that.

For me the site works currently, but the forum is hacked. It was already hacked for a short period of time 2-3 days ago. Seems the bot tries one weak spot after the other: admin fixes one hole bot tests for the next one

Interesting, reminds me of Gregorian chant, but Indian or whatever.
