Susan G. Komen's Hacked Website: 'Help Us Run Over Poor Women'

By The Atlantic Wire

Update: According to a report from Gather, it appears that for a brief moment last night people trying to visit the Komen website last night were redirected:

"For the few that accessed the site around 12:30 a.m. on Thursday, they were redirected from the regular site (www.komen.org) to an artificial site made by the hackers (ww5.komen.org). The job was so inclusive that even in search engines, you were only able to find the hacked site."

Original: Hackers got ahold of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure's website late last night, altering its copy to to read: "Help us run over poor women on our way to the bank" -- a blunt take on the organization's decision to pull funding from Planned Parenthood.
