    Subject: [defaced-commentary] Interesting MTVN Defacement
    On December 8th, a pair of sites were defaced by "fux0r Inc." Of
    interest on this defacement was the following text and linked
    Hotlink.MTVN.com was hacked by The-Rev of fux0r Inc.
    The-Rev (The-Revat_private):
    MTV started out as a way to express creativity throughout the world
    thru the magic of music.
    But today the magic is gone and what were left with is corporations
    seeking the lowest common denominator. What I mean by that is MTV
    pushes the mainstream to create an audience thats more profitable
    instead of what used to be creative.
    My proof is here. Look below. What your seeing is HTML taken by
    http://hotlink.mtvn.com. My hacked username for that site is The-Rev,
    the password for that username is: fireyouradmin
    ...What's behind the password protection of hotlink.mtvn.com is the
    advertiser network for the MTV family of channels. Click on Research
    then Audience Profiles. See what role MTV Is taking to classify and
    profit off you. MTV is big business, and big brother.
    And for all who love satellite pirating, theres a special hidden treat
    with sat info below as well.
    So the next time you see Total Request Live and see your favorite shoe
    being advertised, you'll know why.
