Million Dollar Hijack

Hackers have taken over the Million Dollar Homepage and held it for ransom for $50,000. I previously refused to link to the page but I guess it's ok now. Anyway, the owner of the website refused to pay and the, alleged, Russian hackers crashed the site. Since then mister millionaire has upped the security at his site and it is up and running again.

How funny is this? Russian hijackers? WTF? This is like the script to the most boring James Bond movie ever - and that's saying something.

I guess something like this was bound to happen. The guy made a small fortune for a ridicously simple idea. It was only a matter of time before one of thse "why didn't I think of that?" people got pissed and tried to do something about it.
