A "repulsive," "offensive," and "disgusting" gossip blog at Duke University is under attack—both from school administrators and angry students with rudimentary hacking skills, the Chronicle reports. Cybersaboteurs flooded the site—which allows anyone to post anonymously about students, Greek organizations, alumni, and administrators—with a message that said, "You have been pwned." This traffic forced the site to temporarily shut down.

Although the gossip site is operational once again, one of the hackers, who also remains anonymous, promises he is not so easily discouraged. "She is coming down again soon."
