All,

Today morning when I logged in Javaranch I can see messages like 'Java Sucks' and some unacceptable languages while navigating the links. Is someone has hacked java ranch or its just a fool day flick?

Huh?
Looks OK to me. Tried with Chrome, IE and FF. I am running WinXP.
What is your configuration?

If we get more complaints like this, maybe this should be moved to the Ranch Office forum.

PS. Do you have antivirus on your machine? Which one?

The next time it happens can you take a screenshot, print it out, and fax it to us?

I think it would work better if you photocopy your monitor (but sure it's not too heavy), and then snail-mailed that to us. We're more likely to get it that way. Our fax machine can be kind of hit-or-miss...

Oh wow, we've been hacked!

Thank you for discovering this!

Looking at the IP address of the hacker it seems like he's from Redmond, Washington. His name is Bill...
