Earthrace Captain Claims Japanese May Have Hacked Website

There be strange things going on with the Earthrace website, and Captain Pete Bethune has a pretty good idea who might be responsible. “Our website got taken out three times and it has never been hacked in five years,” the skipper told The Age. “That all happened in the last month. I don’t have the evidence it was the Japanese but I am highly, highly suspicious. They are well resourced and it would not surprise me.”

Apparently, as a result of the attack, the Earthrace website was down for a week (um, why?) and some malicious code was inserted. While the drama surrounding Sea Shepherd, the Japanese, and their efforts to our-duel each other is certainly enough to spawn suspicion over anything out of the ordinary, this could also be the work of some spammers. Content Management Systems, like the one Earthrace.net uses, are often vulnerable to security risks and holes just like the rest of the web. It wouldn’t surprise me if Earthrace’s (now called the Sea Shepherd Ady Gil) growing popularity has made it a target.

Of course, Japanese hackers working night and day to bring down the Earthrace website just sounds better.
