that screenshot being passed around showing the "hidden source" is a fake shoop.
the page source did not say that 12 hours ago when somebody first posted that pic, the source never said that and the source does not say that now. you can easily go check it out for yourself.
there is so much fucking disinformation flying around about this 8channel situation it's ridiculous. here are some actual facts and timeline:
1. over a period of 4 days a number of boards on the 8channel site have XSS attacks, malware domain redirects and IP loggers inserted inserted into them (because the admin/owner clearly does not know what he's doing)
2. 8channel site goes completely down and is totally inaccessible for about 2 hours starting at around 23:30 UTC on 10/31
3. at around 01:30 UTC on 11/1 site becomes accessible again, but only at that "seizure" index page with all other subdirectories, pages, boards and media no longer existing as if the entire site has been purged
4. threads immediately spring up on spacechan/b with 8channel users and BO's freaking out. said threads are full of shoops of shit like that pic and bullshit other "proofs" posted by random anons claiming to be "in the know"
5. someone posting with the 8channel owner/admin's trip shows up saying that the seizure is, in fact, real but also says he can't talk about it and won't give any further information
6. a few other people show up in that same thread and start tripfag posting claiming responsibility and that they are part of an anti discord group of "hackers" who took the site down "because pedos and nazis". they start posting screenshots of their IRC and discord chats where they are supposedly planning the attack as "proofs" and saying that that they are coming after all of the pedo and pol oriented chans
8. 8channel site is still in the state described in #3 above more than 14 hours later
i do not believe that this was some halloween "joke" by the 8channel owner/admin and i also do not believe that this was an actual LEA seizure.
based on the recent history described in #1 above, i am inclined to believe that the place got fatally hacked and the owner/admin has said fuck it and thrown in the towel.
