At approximately GMT 4am 9 Feb 2008, stage6.com was hacked by an unknown hacker posing as eBaum's World. People visiting the frontpage of Stage6 were being redirected multiple shock sites. This lasted for about two and a half hours before a site maintenance notice was put up by the Stage6 team. The motive and extent of damage are still unclear at this point, but it has completely crippled Stage6 for the time being.とりあえず捨て六に登録してあったメアドのパスワードは変更しておいた。重要なメアドでなくて良かった。
The current message at 7:23 GMT upon visiting the site reads that "we are unable to service this request" with no links to the Stage 6 content.
A partial list of Email addresses and passwords for several thousand Stage6 users was released by the group shortly after the attack began in the form of a plain text file posted to 4chan's Random board. The file has since been removed from the site. Users affected were mainly those who had registered a new Stage6 account between December 11, 2007 and February 9, 2008, though the hacker(s) may have accessed the entire Stage6 user database compromising all user logins and might be sharing them over IRC.
Several threads on eBaum's World and various forums have been deleted regarding the hacking of Stage6. The posts ranged from simple "Why did you do this?" threads to malicious verbal insults against the site.
