MacRumors Hacked During Live Keynote

I can’t be at the MacWorld Apple Keynote today so I was planning on watching the live coverage at MacRumors. Every year they have live coverage of information and pictures during the keynotes that I have enjoyed. Well, I was enjoying it until they announced that Steve Job’s just died. hackage by dsandler.

At first I thought I had missed something and that this update during the MacRumors coverage was some joke made by the presenter then I saw more random comments being updated and then the F-BOMB was dropped. Moments later the site when down and my darkest fears were true. I was going to miss the keynote.

I guess Gizmodo will be getting all the traffic from the live feed now. Sorry MacRumors.

Brooks_it, I couldn’t have said it better myself.

    How ironic that a keynote about technology is ruined by technology. This just goes that there is a dark side to everything, and people will always find a way to insinuate their sickness onto the rest of us. What a shame.

    Ya. It is a shame. The entire site is down and I can only imagine what the admins are having to deal with. The MacRumors live feed has sponsors and they cant be too happy about this either.
