I was browsing today and noticed the website appears to be hacked.  Is anyone else seeing this or have any information?  A warning: it's probably best to stay away from clicking into the site at the moment.  I haven't seen anyone posting about it online, so I just wanted to give a heads up in case the site is currently a danger to peoples' computers.

haha no!  I have a screenshot but can't figure out how to upload it.  I entered the website this morning and it said "hacked by...".  I can show a screenshot if someone tells me how.

 

I'm not much of a forum guy.  I had to ask a question for a project in December.  I only come here when I have a question.

Click attachments then add file, then you click start upload then it will be uploaded.

Yep, The Beatles official site has definitely been hacked.

Here's how it's appearing on Google at the moment:

I entered and it's very pretty and I like the music. It's just a "We so hacked this" message.

I wonder why they'd hack The Beatles.  Probably just the name recognition of the band has made them a target.

Probably to prove that they can and show off their skill.

Too bad Paul isn't still married to Heather, he could of unleashed her on to the hackers, they'd be destitute in no time.

Who's going to start the sweepstake for when a) Apple notice and b) get around to fixing it? I'm going for Monday at 11:47am. 

Reason being its the weekend so no doubt they've all went home and wont be back in until Monday at 9:30am, then its cup of tea/coffee & a fancy biscuit, look thru paperwork to see if they need to sue anyone, ensure next load of official merchandise is still on track and then at 10:30am someone bothers their backside to look at the website. Phone Paul, Yoko, Ringo and Olivia for permission to touch the website (hour long negotiations) and then call IT at 11:45am. 2 minutes to actually fix it.
