Hackers Hit MacRumors Keynote Coverage

Live coverage of Macworld was marred today when MacRumors' live-blog feed was hacked during the event. Pranksters posted stuff like “Steve Jobs Just Died” during the event causing a bit of a panic before people realized the site was under the control of hackers.
Some nasty pranksters, likely associated with Web forum 4Chan, have hacked into Apple gossip mainstay MacRumors' live-blog coverage of Tuesday's Macworld keynote. Hosted on a separate domain, MacRumorsLive.com, the site was plagued by offensive messages about Apple CEO Steve Jobs' health and general inanity (i.e. "SEX ME") before finally succumbing to "technical difficulties."
