I know this is going to sound odd, but I think there's something you guys should know about this whole hacked deal. I know a couple of people, I can't say who for their own protection, mine as well, who know 2 of the hackers, I'm just going to call them John and Sara. Anyway, I knew John used to be a hacker, so I asked him what he thought of the 'hacked' message I got when I tried to get on WW.
John says that he knows two of the hackers listed on that screen and that he'll check into the situation with their "boss" so to speak. I can't name him either. I know this sounds odd since I'm not mentioning any names, but I don't want these guys coming after me. I know what they can do. Anyway, he said what they're doing is they are searching for a certain group of people on WW who are using the site as a cover operation for some illegal activity - that could be anyone. They are collecting IP addresses, Sara said, to find these people by hacking into their computers - no, they aren't doing it randomly. They're only targeting users they have a good reason to suspect.
John said to beware of ticking them off - there is NO firewall that is going to stop this group. John and Sara think they're part of a group working for the government, which is why they have so much access to people's computers, but they might not be, too - they could be doing this on their own time. Even if they appear to be gone, don't trust it for a while - they are professional hackers.
Keep in mind I'm only passing along what I'm getting from John and Sara, people. I'll try to keep everyone updated as I learn more, but I'm not sure when I'll hear more on this. If anyone has questions about this, let me know and I'll ask John about them if I can't answer them. I'm not trying to scare anyone, I'm just sharing what I know and giving you the facts I'm getting.
