This morning the hosting company we use to host our dedicated servers was hacked, and it appears they did not store our server passwords securely. Large numbers of sites, including ours, were hacked and defaced.
We do not store payment info or unencrypted passwords on our servers so your data should not be compromised. I will update this post as we bring services back up and find out more.
edit: back up after a site audit, looks like we have a clean bill of health. For those interested, Inmotion Hosting's command and control server was compromised leading their entire data center to be affected. We will be reviewing our contract with them, as well as finding out what kind of hardening measures they will be using to prevent this kind of thing from happening in future on Monday.
