Hackers force web poll to close after skewing results
Online polls on the Herald's website nzherald.co.nz have been pulled until further notice after hackers entered the system, skewing the results of three polls.
The polls - which included questions relating to whether people thought Destiny Church was a cult or a church, if people thought it was okay for MP Rodney Hide to take his girlfriend on tour at taxpayers' expense and if people were sick of being told they were ruining the planet - were hacked late last week.
IPs quoted resolve to:
188.8.131.52 - 118-92-185-135.dsl.dyn.ihug.co.nz
184.108.40.206 - ip-118-90-40-97.xdsl.xnet.co.nz
220.127.116.11 - atm1-0-939.akl-grafton-car1.ihug.net
So 'fess up, who was using their Xnet/Vodafone connection to skew the polls??
