There’s Something Really Phishy About Open Carry Texas
Open Carry Texas’s website appears to have been hacked and infested with Malware. So, who will their fearless leader C.J. Grisham blame this attack on? Benghazi? The IRS? Obummer? The NSA?
[su_center_ad]Naturally, the group is blaming gun control advocates, just because.
#guncontrolextremists have attacked the OCT website. We are aware of the issue. It should be back up with 24 hours.

Or – and I’m just going to throw this out there — it could be that they’re using a cheap server, so that when they get more than a few hundred hits (The site gets very little traffic), then it’s an inadvertent DDOS of sorts of their own site, because they were too cheap to use a better server.
Or it could be spammers. Porn spammers are notorious for this. On FreakOutNation we had as many as 10,000 hack attempts in a day, according to our admin. We did not immediately think: It must be an Open Carry group!
Open Carry Texas’s problem is probably just a cheap VPS service and an equally crappy admin.
SiteCheck notes in regard to OCT’s site, “Your site appears to be hacked. Hacked sites can lose nearly 95% of your traffic in as little as 24 to 48 hours if not fixed immediately – losing your organic rankings and being blocked by Google, Bing and many other blacklists. Hacked sites can also expose your customers and readers private and financial information, and turn your site into a host for dangerous malware and illicit material, creating massive liability. Secure your site now with Sucuri.” (my bold)
Tick tock. The 24 hours time period is up in 3…2…
