If hacking into the UFC.com website was stage one, what is stage two?
It may have been the recent attack on Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White, who engaged in a Twitter war with the "Anonymous" group that claims responsibility for holding his website hostage as a response to the promotion's support of the anti-piracy bills SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP).
"I'm not afraid of you, you don't f*****g scare me, you come in and do your thing, you don't scare me."
Their tete-a-tete on the social media network came to a head when White's personal information was made available, including his address, phone number, social security number and prior criminal record. Then, they turned their attention back to the UFC.com website for a second go-round.
Dana White told us to come at him, so we did. Total deface time: 3 hours. Method of showing off 1337 skills: Tweeted wile video streaming the whole process.
We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Dana White, we are not terrorists, you should have expected us.

This morning, S3rver.exe, the hacker who not long ago breached Sony Pictures and who's currently helping out Anonymous hackers, along with others, breached UFC.com and UFC.tv, defacing some of their webpages.
"I hacked those 2 sites this morning. One of them has 60+ vulnerabilities and ufc.tv has XSS, BlindSQL Injection and other vulnerabilities," the hacker said.
The report also claims that unlike before, hackers have managed to extract critical data from UFC servers. In other words, this one is likely to get worse before it gets better.
But does it change your stance on SOPA, either for or against?
