Not really. The only group that would breach a website and then change
it to lolspeak is Anonymous, but they have no motivation to attack
Debian (it would not even be very Lulz-worthy), and they would
certainly reference Anon, 4chan and or some 4chan meme as well as
using lolspeak. No, it looks like exactly what it is: the legitimate
admins when and changed the front page for some reason (in this case,
April Fools). Plenty of other sites do as or more ridiculous stuff on
this day.
