Myspace hack turns out to be nothing

There was some buzz last night that Myspace, the still extant social networking site recently sold for four empty Coke bottles and a bit of string, was hacked. Visitors to the site saw a message that read "We messed up our code so bad that even puppies and kittens may be in danger. Please turn back ... now." Speculation abounded that it was Anonymous. Turns out that's the standard error message that Myspace uses. As the Register says, "MySpace has returned to its quiescent (seaside town that's seen better days) state."
