Can a blackhat SEO consultant ever go too far?
I think that was answered earlier today when the Google employee Matt Cutts SEO blog was hacked by the owner of a blackhat SEO blog.
Whitehat SEO Turns to the Dark side!
In a moment of madness the whitehat of Matt Cutts was temporarily tossed aside as he recipricated in kind and hacked the blackhat’s SEO blog
Obviously that’s not what really happened. A hackers had some fun with two site owners.
I’m sure Matt and Dark SEO Team will fix their sites quite quickly, so I took screenshots for prosperity

Despite the illegal nature of hacking it is very funny. Matts SEO blog now link to the home page of Dark SEO Team which has also being hacked!
The text is quite funny-
Defaced by Matt ! I ownz you, Dark seo team
Of course I’m lying when I make everyone believe that content is King.
Of course black hat SEO and spamdexing are the only Kings.
Google is just a stupid algorithm relying on spammy backlinks.
But you guys had no right to let everyone know. That’s why I defaced your bloody DST site. To show the entire world how evil a white hat can be.
In fact, I’m as evil as my employer
All your backlinks are belong to us !

If the hackers read this I think you rule, so don’t hack my sites
