I have confirmed that www.drroyspencer.com has been hacked and rendered inoperable.
Dr. Spencer confirms this in an email exchange with me this AM and writes:
“Apparently some Indonesian female hacker.”
Whether this is a direct attack on his views about climate, an indirect attack via a hired gun, or just some kid looking to hold up a trophy for others to see is unclear at this point.
It does point to the risks though of running an independent server. My best advice to anyone in the climate issue is to run on wordpress.com rather than an independent server as they keep everything running smoothly and up to date against the latest security threats.
