<nettime> new york times hacked

Apparently the new york times web site was hacked on sunday, and for some
period of time the page that came up at http://www.nytimes.com was this:

As of now (2:25 EST Monday 9-14) there are some remnants of the hack
visible on the nyt site: the archive search page is unavailable because of
the hack. It is possible that by the time you read this message the
effects of the hack will be entirely gone. 

It would seem this is an example of an electronic disturbance.
