I’m not sure how much of that site you can see as it’s ‘protected’ for members of NLCC and Prints Rupert, but I’m sure you can see “ALPEREN(TURK HACKER)” on the front.
Now, I know nothing about hacking, but I assume when it says “Turk Hacker” and I search google and find that a number of forums have had their name changed to that; the site has been hacked.
Now I’d be rude to just say “tee hee, this site was hacked”, so of course there’s a background to this.
Last spring, I was still an active member of the NLCC (Terrace’s ‘Camera Club’). Then came the day when they decided it was time for a website so we formed a committee that was mainly just myself and another guy. We volunteered ourselves and it soon became an issue between design and functionality. My idea was to have a good looking site using different scripts to run the photo gallery, forum, news, etc. that would be brought together with a Content Management System that allows you total control of the appearance of the site while the other guy on the committee wanted PHP Nuke. For those of you that don’t know PHP Nuke, it’s an extremely generic looking content management system that you just upload to a website and you’re done.
Long story short, the argument was that the club couldn’t afford the software I wanted. So I informed them that everything was free except Invision Board which I have an older copy of on my computer from when it was free. Then the argument was that the site would be hacked because it was on old software. I laughed and said no one would hack a small camera club website. Well, I was wrong, but somehow the magic ‘new’ script they used was hacked. Ironic.
