I didn't get any message, but some of the pictures have disappeared.
Mtfci site is hacked, Russians?
Yes JP I get the same result. I would take great delight in meeting the hackers but I guess they won't offer to meet & greet.
Language is Portuguese.
I notified the exec director. Maybe he can have some members in Brazil track them down and kill them.
Brazil is a long way from Portugal. Spaniards might be a wee bit closer.
Just the life of website moderators!

Where's the happy little tire swing?? Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
Portuguese is the official language of Brazil, btw.
I certainly hope you guys are running malware scans. That's just how most malware gets loaded to a PC--By following an link to an infected site. I didn't look but if the intruder was able to change or add text, they were able to add scripts to load malware on a visitor's PC.
Just a warning.
They look like boyz in the favela, not Europeans. Wherever they are, I hope their computational devices experience a meltdown.
Thanks for the reminder, Ken. Malwarebytes didn't find anything.
My question is what the heck is the point? Just for s***'s and giggles? Disgruntled poster? There can't be any $ involved can there?
Because they can! People with lots of brains and talent and no place to use it.
I would not use "lots of brains" in describing those (I use the term loosely) people. There are in fact many kinds of intelligence, only a few are touched upon by an IQ test. Those people may have loads of very limited talent. But they lack the intelligence to do anything good with it. Unfortunately, something about understanding computers seems to be connected to a very asocial egocentric type of mind. These are people that are incapable of caring about the harm and sometimes expensive damage they do in satisfying their need to feel superior. Most of them aren't smart enough to be able to take care of themselves without help, and cannot perform any real job task.
Society NEEDS to make some difficult decisions and take a hard-line stand on the importance of "right and wrong" over politics. Hackers operate under the same corruption that allows a million people in this country to chose a "respectable" career in "administration" stealing taxpayers money.
My rant for the day.
And my best wishes for MTFCI's speedy recovery.
Also, by the way, not all computer people are like that. I personally know several computer people that are among the best, most really intelligent and caring, people I have ever met. A few of them, like myself, burned out on computers because of prevailing mindsets.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
I'm sure glad you amended your typification of "computer people" or I'd come out there and punch you in the face. I made a decent career with the big ones and self-taught on the small ones and never once thought of doing anything but good with them. And I don't know what you have against "administration" because I've been there too. Perhaps it's a jealously felt by blue collar workers but that can't be since I've also been there. So I don't how or where you conceived your opinion.
Ken - he means politicians - I assume. If so, I agree.
You found my picture! And from a good day too!
One thing I learned a long time ago, when discussing almost anything about human beings, no short statement covers all of any group of people. Unfortunately, I don't always use disclaimers where I should. Especially when I rant.
I have a huge dislike for people that hurt others for fun or profit. Hackers fit into that category.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
I think ken todd's email was hacked to as I got a weird 1. Just said why in the title and no content that was visable.
So much for the latest greatest software. 1 day, probably when it is to late,people will quit changing what aint broke.
