4Chan very rarely actually hack things. They use simple methods like for Myspace passwords, they find out the recovery questions (usually from the person's profile), enter them and change the password, this is how they infamously got hold of Sarah Palin's Email account, all the answers to her 'secret' recovery questions were in her biography or on her online pages. A man simply did his homework, and was able to reset her password this way. Another 4Chan favourite for taking down a website is a DoS attack (Denial of Service), in which case they gather many people, sometimes hundreds, and get them to use the site in question all at the same time, this causes the Bandwidth to run out and the site will crash. 2 simple ways to 'hack' right there
