Original sin?

What’s the blacked out word? And what’s the story?

PS: Is this what you call irony? Not sure. I always get confused. I’d call it satire. I’d probably be wrong. Oh well.

    Hacked.

    The site had so many hacks stacked on hacks that it was never clear if the first one was pure marketing.

    Hackers.
    The ‘Hackers’ movie site was hacked and the main promotional poster was replaced with the one above and the tagline replaced with ‘Hackers – the new
    action-adventure movie from those idiots in Hollywood’. Pretty awesome, it was a horrible movie.

    Hackers..
    MGM/UA set up a website for Hackers that soon afterwards was allegedly hacked by a group called the “Internet Liberation Front.” A photograph of the film’s stars Angelina Jolie and Jonny Lee Miller were doodled upon, and the words “this is going to be an entertaining fun promotional site for a movie,” were replaced with “this is going to be a lame, cheesy promotional site for a movie!” The studio maintained the site during the theatrical run of the movie in its altered form

    There are claims to assert an argument saying that MGM and Digital Planet (site host official Hackers) would purposely leave large security holes so that the site will get hacked, and thus realize a stunt on the film. …
