    bummer, why would somebody want to hack one of the most important resources on the web?
    Maybe this is the start of the 12/12/12 Apocalypse?

    Wow, I've seen a lot on the internet...but not any hacked bike websites. I feel almost worse for the hacker than Dave. Although it is a problem for Dave, he rides bikes and does a good job at it. Bike website hackers...going places.

    Script kiddies will hit any site that sets itself up as an easy target, regardless of content. In this case, if turnerbikes was running joomla as the OP said, and these script kiddies happen to know something about hacking joomla, they'll hack it.

    This is the second time I've seen Turnerbikes.com hacked. Last one was a different place. Regardless it sucks.

    Maybe the person hacking it is dissatisfied with the customer support?! Maybe they had a warranty issue, turner bikes did not warrant. In any event, this totally sucks... I hope they get online soon and I hope they haven't lost any personal information.

    No viruses, just a weird redirect?
    Stupid, but sometimes witty. Occasionally brilliant. Slow and fat though.

    Its usually the hosting company server that gets hacked resulting in ALL the domains on the compromised shared server having their homepage replaced with something else...

    It is hacker bragging rights....in any case its ridiculous. Cant we just keep the hacking down to the Iran Nuclear facilities...
