Hackers have started their onslaught on MilliondollarHomepage type sites. They have found a vulnerability in the script that allows them to post their banner over the advertisers logos. But the advertiser still gets the click thru. These attacks are easily undone and everything returns to normal without the site closing. They are simply just ugly but not malicious. Most sites that were hacked were back to normal in minutes.
Says Peter the Hack ( one of the guilty ) , about the hacks " We can do no lasting damage , just place our oversized "banner" on a free spot , so that it over shadows the real pixels. but the real pixels get the clickthru , you just see our banner. We only do it for fun , not malice. the game is to see who can hack the big one ! "

New Toplist generates amazing traffic for Pixel sites
Friday, 28. October 2005
The Free Million Pixels Toplist ( http://www.freemillionpixels.com/topsites/ ) has generated huge amouts of traffic to the sites that signed up for the free service. The pixel sites , scripts , other lists etc are ll noticing a surge in their stats. this is due partly to the fact that the toplist is receiving thousands of hits daily which in turn leads to free visitors to the sites that came on board.
Sites that didnt join are feeling the pinch as they get left well and truly behind in the "Pixel War" . ( To pun another great pixel directory ). It seems that sites that joined the Webring have benefitted the most. To join the Webring the sites must display a piece of code that allows for easy navigation thru all the member sites. Thus people can surf pixel sites , almost automatically.
The Toplist is a totally free service , being funded only by the odd advert , mainly those from http://ffq.com ( a pixel banner site ) and http://free-banners.biz ( one of the larger Banner Exchange Networks ) .
Most of the traffic to the Toplist comes from the search engines as it is well placed in its appropriate keywords ( First in many ). It has tured out to be a easy way for pixel related sites to get a backdoor onto the no.1 spot , or at least their site featuring for free on the site that is at number one ( and often 2 & 3 aswell )
