DJ Mag foils hacking attack on top 100 poll.

Yes, if you’re on any kind of DJ mailing list you would have been well aware that the DJ Mag top 100 poll has been running for the last few weeks. Voting was due to close on Friday; however there was an attempt to tamper with the system by hacking the facebook app which allows users to cast their vote via the social media platform.

DJ Mag has said:

“We have just managed to foil a malicious attempt to sabotage the final day of voting in this year’s Top 100 DJs poll. Hackers, wishing to capitalise on the notorious last minute rush to cast votes targeted our facebook voting app earlier this evening.

Fortunately our security systems were able to avoid a full crash, however voters may have noticed inconsistent service as we strived to keep the app online.

Due to this we understand that some fans have not been able to cast their votes. As the only DJ poll decided exclusively by clubbers and dance music lovers worldwide, we want to give everyone an opportunity to influence the poll.

As a result we have made the decision to extend the opening hours of the poll by 24 hours. The voting period will now end on September 24th at 00:00 GMT.”

Voting now closes at midnight tonight.

We wonder whether the trance massive have some secret internet trolls…
