    I’m researching website defacement attacks and I’ve seen some images of defaced sites and it usually has these words on it, for example: [https://blog.sucuri.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/image1-600×419.png](https://blog.sucuri.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/image1-600×419.png)

    I think these skids mean “shoutout” and “greetings”

    IMO greetz is from the era of defacements and warez scene.

    With defacements, a hacker would deface a site and usually have a “greetz” section, a shout out to his fellow hackers or friends by their monikers.

    In the warez scene, there would typically be a greetz section at the top or beginning of an .nfo file. These would usually be packed with intricate and beautiful ASCII/ANSI art.
