Last Tuesday, Jan. 20, my phone calendar alarmed to remind me of a web hosting renewal slated to expire on Jan. 29, 2009.
A couple of days after that I typed in the website's url on the web browser and discovered a very disturbing update.
IndieCultureOnline.com had been hacked and forged (see screenshot).
I do recall there was a notification about this in my inbox many months back and at that time I did went to check the cp account. There was an "illegal entry" in the system but the technical support of ICDSoft said that it was fixed. As to when, I have no clue. As to who did it, same. As to why... isn't it obvious?
Is it really worth figuring out?
The website that I conceptualized in 2000 is gone. The business that earned me an award from the British Council of the Philippines as a YME (Young Music Entrepreneur) Awardee in 2005 is lost. IndieCultureOnline, my brainchild - turned to cyber dust.
Meanwhile, I can't help but feel disappointed and frustrated.
