Forum of the Swedish Heraldry Society Hacked!

Yesterday (March 11, 2010) the Swedish parliament voted in favor of a resolution to recognize the mass murder of over a million Armenians by the Ottoman Turks around the time of World War I as a massacre.

Some time today (March 12, 2010), the forum of the Swedish Heraldry Society was hacked by a Turkish hacker in retaliation for the vote.

However, since my day job is in IT, I can say that it’s a lame hack probably done by script-kiddies. They didn’t even touch the main page of the Society itself, just the forum.

Why on Earth would they target an irrelevant site like a heraldic forum?

Then again, this guy doesn’t appear to have an IQ sufficient enough for critical thinking…
