Only days after Madonna tried to combat illegal trading of songs from her American Life album, out today, by flooding the Internet with fake MP3s, her Web site was hacked and real digital files of the songs were leaked.
The Smoking Gun is reporting that the hacker defaced the singer's homepage Saturday with the words, "This is what the fuck I think I'm doing" -- a response to MP3s circulated to confuse file traders that included only a tape-looped message from Madonna herself saying, "What the fuck do you think you're doing?" MP3s of every song from American Life were posted along with the hackers' message.
Madonna.com was taken offline for an nearly fifteen hours after the hack.
