Haxor to Stereogum: Sufjan Will Be the End of You

Um so someone just asked me “What happened to Stereogum?” So I headed over and saw this:

stereogum.com hacked

For those who can’t read minus 20 point font, it says:

Hello Scott.

What happened to my site?

Your server has been compromised on a root level and has at least 3-4 different exploits installed.

WTF? By whom? Pitchfork?

Perhaps SUFJAN was a poor password.

How am I gonna post that MP3 of snippets from every song on the new Dylan album? Sounds really promising! Heavy on the R&B swing that made Love And Theft his best album in decades.

Fix your fucking blog dude.

Yikes! Burn. 🙁

UPDATE: So according to comments, Scott put up that message himself…too bad, a hacker putting it up would have been better. Sometimes the truth is less interesting than fiction. I’m too busy freaking out about Pete Wentz’s GAP ads to care either way.

  1. That is so cool! I went yesterday when he had the message “we’re working on it” and now this! I mean it SUCKS to get hacked, but if you’re going to-a super cool/creepy vendeta at least makes for some intertesting times. That person is really sad. And enjoyable.
