Artist Madonna launched her latest album with an anti-piracy campaign in P2P networks, distributing MP3 tracks that looked like actual songs from artist's latest album, but contained simply a voice of Madonna asking "What the **** do you think you're doing?".

Well, some clever hackers who obviously got relatively angry about artist's attitude against P2P networks, managed to hack her official website, madonna.com, during the weekend and posting all the tracks from her album American Life for download.

The hacked website simply stated: "This is what the **** I think I'm doing". After the hacking was noticed, Madonna's site went offline for good 15 hours.

UNBELIEVABLE!!! And yet kind of amusing. She might be thinking now "how did they do it?" after probably paying a good amount of money for this anti-piracy technology and being assured that her albumis secure from being ripped online...

Well, some hackers can do just about anything! I wish I knew one - its curious to meet and talk to him about something like this.

Best,

Yes, I heard about that. I bet she wishes she didn't flood Kazaa with her bogus files now...
