Hack This Site has become a cow?

if you visit the directory of /images/ on hts
then you get a page that has a content of "moooooooooooooooooo"
this just seemed weird to me and I was wondering if anyone had any information on this
or if anyone noticed any similar pages

It's just the default page for that directory. Cows have a long history in the hacker community. They're more sacred to us than they are to Hindus.

Guys, I know I'm not supposed to tell, but this guy seems smart enough.

There's a puzzle on /images. Figure it out, and ... well, you'll see.

Hint: What does a fish eat?

Can you tell me about this long history? I never heard about it, and I'm curious.

AR wrote:It's the fucking index.html page in that directory so you can't view the files, idiot. The devs think that you'll be able to hack the site by using images or something, so they use that because they don't know how to hide directories.

First off, it was an innocent question. Nobody else saw fit to call him an idiot, so I don't see where you picked that up. We're here to teach, after all.

And the devs DO know how to hide directories. They do it quite frequently. I know this because I've looked. And I highly doubt they could build a system like this and NOT know how to implement a simple .htaccess or set up their Apache correctly.

@trueamericanpatriot, there is a reason that most hackers despise people like you, you have no interest to learn, only yell.
you fear what you don't know, and you fear alot.
maybe one day, you will see the real world, a world without right or wrong, without gods (mortal or immortal), and without blind patriotism.
this is the world of the electron and the switch, and it will stand where your utopian illusion once was stood mighty, but void.

Thank you dark159123.

Can someone please mute that guy? Or something like it?

@americanpatriot: I'm going to tell you straight out. YOU ARE AN IDIOT, AN ARSEHOLE, AND A FUCKING TROLL (1). NOW GET OUT(2). And if you don't, well, that's fine by me.

1. I know it's an opinion, but it's an opinion, so I can say whatever I want.
2. I know you can't get "out" of an internet site, I just want you, the user, to stop being so mean to the rest of the community.

P.S. I know trolling lets off steam, and that there's no way for others to attack you, because you are behind a computer screen somewhere in god knows where. I suggest you go outside and play, or hang out with friends and such.
To sum it up, let's be friends. I respect your opinion, but I feel sort of offended at the way you are correcting people. Please stop.
