SOHH & AllHipHop.com: Hacked!

Sohh.com and AllHipHop.com hacked
Cyber racists decided it would be fun to hack into the sites of SOHH.com and AllHipHop.com last Friday. The sites were initially penetrated through their forum pages.

Both sites were forced to temporarily shut down while they dealt with fake racist articles and headlines spouting racial slurs.

Personal information belonging to SOHH.com workers was swiped causing them to distress about the possibilities of identity theft.

A statement was issued on Friday by AllHipHop.com co-founders Chuck Creemur and Greg Watkings:

"AllHipHop and SOHH, two pioneering Web sites that have been in the industry for over 10 years, are appalled by the unprovoked racist attacks of these cyber terrorists.

With all the social strides that we have seen for several years, it is sad to see that this sort of blatant, hateful racism still exists in 2008 — a time of tremendous possibility.

Together, AllHipHop and SOHH are committed to relentlessly pursuing these attackers, using every resource available, to ensure the capture of these criminals and prevention of repeat offenses."


The hackers were specifically targeting African American, Hispanic, Asian and Jewish youth who declared themselves hip-hop fans.

SOHH.com CEO Felicia Palmer warned that the matter is “an international issue, [that] is being addressed by the FBI and the Strategic Alliance Cyber Crime Working Group.”

I hope they are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

  1. And ignorant! Girl this is just beyond words. Why are people so pissed that black folks are enjoying a particular genre of music and minding their business on a web site?

    Some people are just not happy unless they are causing drama.

Michael Jackson: Before & After Thriller

As you may know by now, Michael Jackson will be on the December 2007 issue of Ebony Magazine. They are showcasing him 25 years after "Thriller".

I commend him on still trying to be out there after years of controversy and court cases, but I wish the man had stayed out of the plastic surgeon's office.

Here's Micheal Jackson before "Thriller"
