Hackers, Leave Our Bands Alone

2006_12_14magneta.jpgChart Attack and CBC Radio 3 reported that hackers have gotten in and deleted the MySpace account of local indie rockers Magneta Lane.
The popular band lost over two years worth of fan comments and 7,000 friends.
The ladies are getting back on their feet though. As of the writing of this post Magneta Lane has a functional page again, with videos and music and 372 friends.
As for those alleged Turkish hackers that did this, we hear the Vatican and/or the U.S. government has a few nice sites that probably deserve some hacking. But geez, leave the poor musicians alone.
