Bellowhead Website hacked

I assume other people have noticed the Bellowhead website has been hacked?  It has got worse over this evening.

Click here to make a clicking sound - doesn't work on touchscreen devices for some reason.

What was the point? All that effect to hack in and then they can't even get their message right.

My Firefox has just been updated and now my bookmark for the Bellowhead site brings up Index of Bellowhead instead of the site.  The only part that seems to work is the Parent Directory which goes to the main site.  Googling Bellowhead also brings up the Index as well as the ordinary site.  This lead me to check the Navigation Bar and some of these bring up an error 403 - particularly Contact, Links and Band.

I assume whoever does the site admin knows this but in case they don't I thought I better mention it here!

(The Index looks like this_

The hackers caused all kinds of problems deep within the site.
Our lovely web team have been working at it all week and have it mostly sorted now.

Thanks Mark - and the lovely website team

It is such a pointless crime - another forum which we use has also been off line all week due to a similar issue

Many thanks from me too - I've never understood why people do that.

Yes all the links seem to work fine now.  I had to rebookmark the site and delete my old bookmark.  Good work the team!

I don't know whether it's another problem.  There seem to be various comments about Mulberry Bags and other stuff under the September Newsletter item. 

(I don't think Bellowhead are selling these are they?!)
