This thread is getting severely derailed. Security concerns are ok, but there's a point where it's just grasping at straws to prove a theory.

The more autonomous a site is, the more difficult a hack would be. Vlad's site would have no backend to hack. There's no need for one to exist. The hacker would either need direct access to the server's filesytem or a method to hijack DNS servers to point to their own server.

Packetsniffing is a moot point since the entire infrastructure of the internet is based on devices that route packets that are marked to go to X network specifically through port Y. The only way packetsniffing may be a problem is if the user is on a public wireless network, in which the entire communication is broadcasted with no encryption and no control over what receives it.
