April Fool’s Day // Negative99 Gets Hacked By Islamic Terrorists!

Today your RSS feed may have brought up a strange post on Negative99.com… just after a post critical of radical Islam.

My site hacked by Islamic radicalsAnd when you go to Negative99 you see a page that has most certainly been hacked! Oh no! :-) But all is well… it’s April 1, and this blog – which sat out the last few April 1′s – decided to celebrate this one.

April 1 is a day of fun on the internet… when websites will post fake stories and feature special surprises. For example, Google started taking volunteers today for its Mars colonization program in partnership with Virgin Airways. :-)

So after I posted yesterday on my blog about the recent Fitna movie controversy (which was critical of radical Islamism) I decided that a GREAT April Fool’s Day joke would be to hack my own site! I opened up Photoshop and went to town putting together what I would do if I were to hack someone’s page (a weird feeling indeed). One of the hardest things about pretending to be a Muslim extremist – incredulously enough – was finding extremist material on the web to use on the site!? Indeed… what I thought would take 30 seconds actually took 30 minutes of pouring through google search results to try and find SOME terrorist website. I had to settle for grabbing images off of the terrorist groups’ MySpace pages (you can’t make this stuff up). I can’t even imagine what it’s going to be like the next time I try and fly in an airplane after all the colorful search strings I sent through Google.

So, I took the hacked-site-image I created and made a special site theme (called “Infidel”) which would ONLY show a “hacked” webpage of my creation, but that would allow my RSS feed to continue to work. This morning before work I initiated the hack.

I was very heartened by the outpouring of concern today via cellphone and email. Many friends and colleagues picked up on the “hack” quickly and started calling me. I was also very flattered that most (about 80%) thought the hack was legit! Cool! :-) And really… in the hustle and bustle of the daily grind who has time to pay attention to the fact it’s April 1? I don’t always… and in fact one year a local radio station’s morning show (Wakin’ Up With the Wolf on PYX106) had me convinced they were bought out and replaced with a Spanish-only show. Oops. :-)

So rejoice, for what it’s worth Negative99.com has survived the clutches of fake Islamist ‘l33t h4x0rs.

    Thats a good one. Dang, I was convinced. Which led to some potentially bad things

    1) When someone hacks a website, they gain access to all of the information on it

    2) In order to post a comment, one must give you their E-mail address.

    3) If they decided I was too vocal about extremist islam (look @ Islam is a Blast) they might hack into my E-mail and find out where I live. Then they might send me some anthrax or something.

    Believe me, I was waiting until today to see if it was just an April Fools joke. If you didn’t have the regular site up and running, I was going to call the FBI, CIA, EIEIO, and a few other Government initials. Then maybe they could track down the extremists and do away with them.

    I still did my e-mail harm, though. I deleted most everything and downloaded my contacts onto a flash drive, then I deleted those to be sure the fake extremists couldn’t up and hack them and find out where they live. I couldn’t figure out how to delete the e-mail account itself (yeah, I’m barely computer literate) so I falsified my personal information. My name (by e-mail) is now Johan Van Shvigel and I live in the Norfolk Islands. Man, War-Axe, You had me hook line and sinker. Still, Where did you get the 12 page essay on our dear beloved “fake” bible?

    thats not funny. By the way im muslim. why does it alwasys have to be terrorists? i mean u coudve joked about something else. wth was the point of putting islam in their i follow the religion islam and i think thats really offensive putting islamic terrorists. also i dont think you should be searching up those kind of things like terrorist and stuff because the FBI and other police forces keep an eye on those kind of searches and they can question you if they find out even if your not muslim.

    I thought that Osama was on his way for sure. Thankfully I can read Arabic and quickly realized that it was really an ad for Viagra. Pretty competitive prices too.

    Let’s say that I would have prefered a joke which doesn’t actually involve a suggestion about muslims, because this a prove of racism. Even if this is 1st April, I can’t say that all the jokes are allowed.
