H4xor Pwns Joe

In the end, I don't think the hacking of Lieberman's website is going to matter either way.

I did just get word that Lieberman has cancelled his last two events of the day, which were supposed to be in Waterbury and Bristol.

There are reports of pretty decent turnout coming in from all over the state. Could be as high as 30% by the end of the day, or higher.

Somebody, not me, posted this on Ned Lamont's blog:

There is no denial of service going on.

How do I know? Go visit http://rksguitars.com/ now. They’re another customer of mybasecamp.com, and they are hosted on the same server that hosts joe2006.com (IP address 69.56.129.130).

RKS Guitars is accessible and speedy. Joe2006 still redirects to an out of service page.

An actual DoS attack would affect the responsiveness of both websites.

Joe2006 could come back up right now with a one-line change to an httpd.conf file, I’d wager. Why the Lieberman campaign prefers to leave it down is a matter for speculation.

And Sean Smith still needs to explain how joe2006.com emails are being delivered if this attack “fatally” damaged their mail services as he claimed.

The Lamont blog just posted a link to Google's cached version of Lieberman's site. It's too bad the rest of the media will probably follow Sean Smith in throwing mud at the Lamont campaign...

I cannot believe that with all the hype BR has been spewing for months now that he is stoll holed up in front of his 'puter instead of out working for a candidate he so strongly supports.

What crap.

Damn Bruce, I was hoping you'd forget that little wager. Bullets are expensive!

I am a website designer for four major republican candidates and an employee of a major computer company. The joe2006.com website problem is not caused by a DNS Problem or Sql... it is rooted in the original config. of the main web server by the company. So if a hacker got into a main linux box then this problem occurred and/or "admin access". Even if a campaign paid $20 dollars for hosting it still would not affect this problem.
