Hacked!

Today, Israellycool was hacked for the first time, rendering it inaccessible. It looks like my web site host PressHarbor was able to rid the site of the virus which was placed in my files, but in the meantime I seem to have lost my previous theme. Please bear with me while I try to restore the site to its former glory.

    Who needs a theme! Quick loading and zippo clutter.

    Woohoo!

    Thanks Russia/China/whoever you are. :)

    I like this format much better than the one that was hacked. it’s simpler and not as gimicky. Stick with it

    Fortunately I was running NoScript on Mozilla on a Mac, so I didnt have to worry about the virus.

    It was kind of interesting. I was wondering what the heck was going on cause it only showed part of a URL, so I clicked noscript and saw a Russian script was trying to load, but NoScript said NO!

    No theme is a big improvement here as I use a browser that doesn’t do CSS.

    I prefer to have all the text on all web pages in a font that is easy for my eyesight. Not in tiny brown type on a green background, or whatever.

    Bring back plain information-based web sites!

    I really like my previous theme, and I paid a pretty penny for it.

    Sadly there are no lengths those who oppose free speech are using to stop the truth from coming out. Iran murders its children hamas ands hizbolla do the same beause of their own actions. Now they attack a site that fights for the rights of Jews everywhere. have your isp execute trace back routines and you may be able to id the culprit and have them arrested

      It's more likely just a generic hacker. As I stated above, there appeared to be a virus placed on the page of Russian origin.

    Well, the site is easier to read this way. But it looks too normal.

  • Michael

    Any ideas as to who would have done this? Maybe it was ole Dicky? ;-)

      It was some random Russian hacker(s) slapping a virus onto an insufficiently secure website.

    Thankfully the real IsraellyCool is back. The slimmed-down version gave me the feeling of struggling through a snow storm above the Arctic Circle. It was very cold and a little creepy. I love the flashy, shiny stuff a lot more. Functionality is important but you do want to look your best. too.

      And welcome back Jim from Iowa. I was getting worried about you, having not received a comment from you in what seems like ages.

    Must have been Richard SIlverstein!

    I was wondering why I can now get Israellycool to load. The new flashy stuff won't run on my netbook at all.

Israellycool is testing Sovevos. Click for more info.
