I've had this happen once, where a file was hacked on my WordPress blog. I had no idea either, a friend pointed it out to me.

It's nice to know we have smart people we can count on to inform and help us, eh?

I wonder if there is a way to be alerted automatically, like something in Google's webmaster tools. Hmmm...

always a pleasure. Interestingly Godaddy was realtime on their twitter feed but not with directly contacting customers. I think a few "billable hours" went into their email.

Dave -- indeed - having smart people to help is key.

Thanks again, Jim! I think you're right that the lawyers had to get their hands on the communications.

Getting hacked is no fun experience. Happened to me a few weeks ago... I wouldn't know where to start. But like you, it's nice to have a few friends. I reached out to @dremeda and the folks at Sucuri Security. They worked over-time and fixed the issue in just a few short hours.

I wouldn't have met them if it wasn't for Twitter and events like WordCamp.

This thing happens but there is always a cure to the problem. If you are running wordpress you can easily re-install if there is file missing issue that would be solved.
