Web site the SyFy Portal falls to the guns of various hackers.

This just in from Michael Hinman over at web site

"Earlier this week, SyFy Portal was apparently hacked. The perpetrator was able to gain access to our databases, and deleted several key databases necessary for publishing news on the site. I guess it could've been worse, but the damage is quite extensive, as we are working around the clock to restore our writing staff's ability to post stories once again."

They're working hard to get back on their feet again.

Good luck guys, we were hacked ourself back in 1994 thanks to a crap ISP's firewall not being installed, so we know what a pain this can be.

Hopefully they'll be back soon over at
