Ditto, page not loading, possibly been removed because of the article/malware?

DMASA is looking more and more like a Mickey Mouse show...first the leak of 39000+ people's detailed personal info and now this? If they want to be taken seriously then they need to look into more secure ways of sharing information and stop being cheap with hosting/security.

First, what is "myteenmovies.net", I'm at work and that seems NSFW. It probably means their website has been pwn'd! *great*

over the past few years have seen this on big name websites, wish I could remember the details of which sites, but this happens when the website has been hacked...sql injection used to load naughty javascript onto the webpage...

Lol, I think that it is the worst when they are only informed by people that are complaining of naked ladies jumping up on the web page

Thread necro warning (related to: https://mybroadband.co.za/news/secu...-man-accused-of-the-experian-data-breach.html)

Karabo Phungula , webmaster for the DMASA, said he was unaware of the issue until it was brought to his attention by MyBroadband and would be approaching their hosting company for support.

Phungula has worked in the direct marketing industry for the better part of a decade. He said that from 2010 to 2011, he was an IT consultant for the Direct Marketing Association of South Africa (DMASA).

His role at the DMASA included acting as webmaster for the organisation. In 2011, he responded to MyBroadband’s questions regarding the DMASA website being hacked. Later that year he launched an ad-supported SMS service called KujoSMS.
Go figure, the DMASA employed a spammer to be their webmaster, no wonder the DMASA was hacked (about 3 times).
