Hackers force Hasbro to shut website

by Phiber on January 30th, 2001 Hackers were so amazed by's lack of security that they taunted the company with graffiti referring to its vulnerability and uploaded soft porn images onto the site.....

They then emailed the tech people at Hasbro telling them of the security lapse and encouraging them to rectify it.
After 24 hours had passed and nothing had been done, the initial hackers carried on with their fun.
Eventually, after two days Hasbro's tardy tech team noticed and pulled down the site at 3pm on Thursday afternoon.
