Most website hacks these days are done in order to place malicious attack code on your website in order to compromise the computers of visitors to your site. Keep in mind that you do not have to download or install anything these days to get nailed, google “drive by download” for more information.

BTW I did not click your link for more details, as frankly I don’t know if you have a clean site or not and would rather not risk it.

I suspect it is the same mentality of the yobboes who spray paint gibberish all over, ‘Hey look at me I have no other value in my life so I thought I’d destroy your stuff too’....very frustrating.

Cody:

Okay. So I took a chance and and did the “Click Here for more details”. It seemed to me to be a normal Web Site. Did I somehow miss the “More Details” part?

Was your Site actually “Hacked” i.e. someone tried to take it down, change your site information, place malicious Code, etc. or did someone just Post some Nasty Stuff?

EDIT: I just went back onto your Site. Are you referring to the 2 Comments on the Blog about “Android Version”?

Apparently I can leave a “Comment” on there quite easily by filling in the Info you ask for (Name & email address) which could be False Info, unless you Review it before allowing it to be Posted?
