If you visit the Lightwave home page http://www.newtek.com/lightwave/ right now it just says this "Hi ADMiN ^_^". Looks like it may have gotten messed with. May have gotten hacked.

The NewTek front page seems legit, however the LightWave page DOES NOT.

This is clearly someone trying to mess with NewTek now, the hacked forums and now this. Maybe a peeved user / ex-employee / LW competition?

Either way, it is no longer funny and I would LOVE to know who is doing this.

It is clearly a LightWave thing as no other part of NewTek.com has been touched, _just_ the LightWave page.

I've made Jay aware of it.

uh-oh. root access is not a good thing!

as to what the page looks like, i'll take your word for it. i'm not going to click over to there, as it seems like a tailor-made situation for malware delivery.

Yep, looks like it's up now. Maybe it was an easy fix or they had a backup server or something.
