It's a weekend, and a holiday weekend to boot, so the site
might stay this way for some time. Someone apparently used SQL
injection to wipe, and we do mean wipe, the RIAA's website clean of
content.

Apparently the RIAA is so busy suing consumers that they forgot to hire a decent programmer. With a simple SQL injection, all their propaganda has been successfully wiped from the site.

It started out on the social news website Reddit, where a link to a really slow SQL query was posted. While the Reddit users were trying to kill the RIAA server, someone allegedly decided to up the ante and wipe the site’s entire database.

Anyone have a backup?
