Guardian site hacked or accident?

by Andy Polaine on June 7, 2007

This story on the protesters at the G8 summit has a set of related links at the bottom of it. I noticed today that the one saying G8, which is meant to link to the Guardian’s Special Reports on the G8 in fact links to g-8.org.uk, which in turn re-directs to Do It Yourself: The Handbook For Changing Our World.

The book bills itself as “A Radical Guide to Ethical and Sustainable Living” and includes direct action. So, was the Guardian site hacked? Was it a database tagging slip-up or did someone within the Guardian Online’s ranks slip in the link? Or was it the janitor?

I don’t suppose the link will stay there for long, so go and take a look while you can.
