The popular and rowdy message board 4Chan (very NSFW) has struck again. Best known as a fertile breeding ground for internet memes, a collective based around the site has hacked Time Magazine’s annual “World’s Most Influential Person” poll to place 4Chan founder moot at the top of the list. Time claims no significant  foul play was involved, but looking at the results makes it very clear that something is amiss. Music Machinery does a good job of explaining the technical details behind this hack, which involved auto-voting programs and breaking a captcha system.

Music Machinery: “moot wins, Time Inc. loses”
