People trying to browse the NZXT site last night as well as those subscribed to the NZXT newsletter got an awful surprise when a letter was released stating that NZXT was going out of business. This was an attack on their site in which hackers infiltrated the site and changed product warranties, deleted products and banners, and even sent out a newsletter stating that NZXT was going out of business.

The folks at NZXT have since booted the hackers, cleaned up the site and have assured us that NZXT is still going strong and plan to continue business as usual. Here's the official statement from Johnny Hou, Product Manager and Co-Founder of NZXT:


To our friends and loyal customers in the PC enthusiast community,

Yesterday at 7:30 PM PST the NZXT website was infiltrated illegally. While having access to the site, hackers made several malicious changes including sending out an erroneous newsletter to our database claiming that NZXT is going out of business. They also changed product warranties, deleted product and home page banners, etc.

Well, I'm happy to report that NZXT is NOT going out of business and to the contrary we are more excited than ever to be a part of this tremendous industry. We are poised to launch several highly anticipated products over the next two months including the Phantom full tower case we unveiled at Computex. We feel this will provide enthusiasts with one of the most fresh and unique case designs in quite some time.

I'd like to take this opportunity to offer my sincere gratitude to the community for your ongoing support of NZXT. We design our products based on what you need to build a stellar PC and welcome your feedback as to how we can help your computing experience be as enjoyable as possible. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions.

Best regards,

Johnny Hou
Product Manager and Co-Founder of NZXT
