And you know it's the ultimate-super-elite kind of hacking because is starts with a captial "H". Just like God with a capital "G".

Because hardcore Hackers can't possibly do anything to the address bar.
Does this mean I need to repost it 16 times or did your paste button get stuck?
Ok, enough mocking. To my knowledge, mySpace has not been hacked. What the article mentioned above describes is not hacking but account passwords being compromised. This can be by people leaving their account logged in on a public computer, sharing their password with someone, social engineering, etc. This is not a problem exclusive to mySpace but anywhere with a login requiring a password. There were some rumors (FOAF kind of stuff) of cross-site scripting attacks but again these are not new or limited to just mySpace accounts.
I'm sorry but if you still fall for email scams like these, then I bet you're still waiting for a check from a rich business man in Nigeria.
