Attitude: Login failed for SQL Server login ‘trojan’. The password for this login has expired.

It seems that Attitude Magazine’s website, Attitude.co.uk is down at the moment. I followed a link to it that I saw on a post about Harry Judd’s workouts and was confronted with a page of SQL errors.

The error message states

Login failed for SQL Server login ‘trojan’. The password for this login has expired.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Login failed for SQL Server login ‘trojan’. The password for this login has expired.

Source Error:

An unhandled exception was generated during the execution of the current web request. Information regarding the origin and location of the exception can be identified using the exception stack trace below.

This suggests that a hacker, virus or trojan has managed to gain access and was doing something sneaky for a bit. Maybe they had been there a long time and nobody knew, maybe they just attacked the site to take it offline today.

I guess some people feel very strongly about gay rights (i,e, some people think it is bad) and attack such sites.

Hopefully Attitude will be back online soon, never nice to see well established and proper businesses go offline like this.
