NYTimes.com hacked?

As if newspaper Web sites weren’t already suffering enough, reports are funneling in that the NYTimes.com was hacked earlier today. The internet spoof seems to have been fixed, but apparently, the site was redirecting some readers to various malware sites and prompting bizarre antivirus downloads.

If this was a new advertising strategy, the Times was really going out on an innovative limb. And if it was a technological hoax, those hackers should have chosen a better Web site. Like maybe one that people still read.
