RobFord.ca, Old Rob Ford Website Hacked
A site that once belonged to Toronto mayor Rob Ford is now redirecting visitors to the page of a notorious American outlaw.
Earlier in the day, visitors to Robford.ca, which was used by Ford when he was a councillor, got a message reading "Rob, We're Sorry" and then were redirected to the Toronto Star. The newspaper and the mayor are currently embroiled in a conflict over the mayor's unwillingness to send releases to the paper or speak to any Star reporters. The mayor is demanding an apology over a story on how the mayor allegedly assaulted a student he coached at high school football.
A search on the Wayback Machine shows that the site once hosted information on the mayor such as voting records and events in his ward.
Spurr tweeted today that he demands "full credit!" for the subsequent gag.
A Whois search reveals that Robford.ca was registered on November 16 by Fresh Grape Solutions Inc.
