Iran Prez Blog Hacked!
Some time in the last two hours (we checked it during the press conference and it was fine), mysterious, incredibly dorky hackers "defaced" the personal blog of Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. After the embarrassingly nerdy credits and logo, there's some text in what may be Farsi (but then, fuck do we know?).
In case anyone wants to take a crack at translating, the geeky (but clearly freedom-loving) losers' message is reprinted after the jump.
Update: A translation, from a reader, indicates that the hackers have hacked not out of protest, but rather to leave an encouraging comment. It's a big love-in (they "would like to thank you on behalf of all of Iran's hackers"). Say what you will about Ahmadinejad, but the guy's getting better at PR every damn day. The translated message is after the jump.
