Skrillex website hijacked by notorious penguin hacker
You read correctly, folks. The penguin hacker has struck again. Last November, a Turkish squad identified as “Eboz” prompted the “mass defacement” of over 280 popular “.pk” (Pakistani) domains. Google.pk, Yahoo.pk, Apple.pk and many more were defiled by the congenial image you see before you – penguins in an embrace, toddling toward the sunset. Skrillex.com would have the same fate Tuesday night. With Sasha and Maria’s “Be As One” reportedly supplying background ambiance, the non-political attack came with the following clandestine message from Eboz:
“My homies are always with me, among friends,
Is there anyone not with me in every breath I take?”
“Greetings to friends; we’re not dead, still living,
I have nothing to do with Facebook, Twitter, or forum accounts.”
“With You Friends” feels necessary… Sonny himself is undeterred by the defilement, appreciating the violation for what it is – comical. Here’s to hoping the Grammy-winner uses the event for inspiration.
Damn somebody hacked/jacked http://t.co/W6bRfsqJfK haha

A twitterer also astutely pointed out the similarity between a photograph of Boys Noize and Skrillex at Coachella with the unwarranted penguins. While this has nothing to do with the story, it is generally hilarious.
