The HTML code says this “new and improved rebranded” website is that includes Ryan King and Rory Andrew Godfrey — two people who some web posters have recognized as members of Lizard Squad.
Not everyone seems to be seeing the alternative web page although — for our employees it solely seems over sure connections, however not others — so it could possibly be a DNS redirect that hasn’t hit in all places.
