RubyOnRails.org hacked?

In trying to update my Ruby gems today, I got some strange errors.  Upon navigating to the Ruby on Rails site, I saw the following:

So what’s the word?  Did the main Ruby site get hijacked or expired?  If so, this could be yet another obstacle to enterprise adoption of Ruby/Rails.

Update: This post has been posted to Digg, and comments there indicate that the RoR IRC channel has acknowledged an issue with the domain, and they are “looking into it” (i.e. – 37 Signals is calling their lawyers).

    Seems like it is a real issue and the site had expired, the RoR IRC channel says: “rubyonrails.org problems are being investigated”

    According to http://www.whois.net/whois_new.cgi?d=rubyonrails&tld=org
