Craigslist Knocked Offline
Ryan Simmons / 6 years ago
Craigslist was knocked offline yesterday (Sunday) and at the time of writing, it still hasn’t come back.
The suspected DNS hijack was previously redirecting visitors to a website called Digital Gangster. The Next Web points out that this site was behind a famous 2009 Twitter hack and another hack which took pictures from Miley Cyrus’ Gmail in 2008.
They also point out the fact that the domain name shortly had its owner changed to “steven wynhoff @LulzClerk” – a name associated to hackings of YouTube accounts and the email account of the supposed creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto.
The site appears to be slowly coming back to life, but still hasn’t fully resumed service.
