The source code of the hacked server does not comprise of any malicious script, according to Italian IT journalist Paolo Attivissimo. Instead, it is an animated script which also includes a link to javascript on a now-nonexistent Google Code account, masterendi, previously associated with the hacking of at least three other websites.
