  1. I doubt if they have done this from Pakistan shores as the country is heavily flooded now and infrastructure won’t be in that top shape. But they might have done it from an anonymous country thats for sure.

  2. It’s better off to have such a site down with such a terrible design. I still wonder why such a profitable company doesn’t make enough efforts to get some safety measures done. :(

  3. There seems to be a lot of really good hackers in Middle East. It is impressing what sites they’ve hacked in the past year considering that many of them still run on 56k internet.
