The "message" has now changed into what appears to be binary code over at linkinpark.com/message. More on this as it becomes available here at LPA.
UPDATE 4: Mike Shinoda posted a blog entry and thread reply stating the puzzle has been solved. According to his post:
In the linkinpark.com chat, KATHYxx and NeXus87 just solved the puzzle. Rob Walker and MCRC were instrumental in solving the puzzle. Special shout-out to Alex, whose post also came very close, and helped the rest get the correct answer:
A THOUSAND SUNS."
UPDATE 3: After a lot of Google searching, as Mike suggested, LPA Forum member mcrc found this quote from Wikipedia page J._Robert_Oppenheimer:
"If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the mighty one..." & "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."
This is in relation to the first ever atomic bomb, and references the Trinity Test. For more info on this check out the respective Wikipedia page.
