Hackers have taken over MacRumors live feed which was broadcasting the MacWorld keynote address.

The feed at http://www.macrumorslive.com was interrupted by hackers while the keynote presentation was being broadcasted. They proceeded to post messages on the feed themselves.

It is unknown who these hackers were or why they had targeted MacRumors.
