RIAA Website Wiped Clean

Thanks to an SQL injection, the RIAA website took a beating from hackers earlier today. According to TorrentFreak, a slow processing SQL query was posted on Reddit. Reddit user’s responded by trying to kill the RIAA server but as they were doing so, someone ended up wiping the entire site’s database.

Since the article was published, the RIAA has restored their website but they apparently have yet to fix the issue. Check out that TorrentFreak article for pictures of what the website looked like earlier in the day. My favorite is the error messages RIAA SUCKS … XSS ftw?
