ACT Member of Parliament Rodney Hide's blog hacked

Kiwiblog has posted that ACT member of parliament, Rodney Hide, has had his blog hacked.

Instead of Rodney's usual musings on dancing and occasional politics related comment, the site only reads:

by Thehacker iz birakanlar unutulmaz

My Turkish is pretty rusty, but I think that translates as "Thehacker left a sign to be remembered".

Did Rodney forget to keep his software up to date? I'm sure this story will be all over the media soon.
