"Blogrolling" - problem with a malicious hacker earlier today

I've just been reading the 'Latest News' on the Blogrolling website; Jason confirms that the system was the subject of some kind of malicious attack earlier today - he had 3,000 e-mails (!!) awaiting him when he arose today, poor fellow; I expect my message was one of these. He says he has narrowed down the time-frame when it happened, but is still investigating who was responsible. He was able to restore the corrupted files from an off-site back-up, but this dates from Saturday last so any link updates since then will have been lost - fortunately this doesn't affect me, as I haven't updated my links for a week or so. (I've deleted my earlier posts on this matter, so as not to clutter up my blog)
