I recently discovered that my web designer was hacked: there was a HTML hidden div selling about shoes... I Googled the text in question and voila: thousands of sites have been hacked.
Check this out:
Google 'There is also hang tag made of leather, a slip pocket to put cards' and go to the sites in the results and look at the source code of the page.
You'll see something like:
<div style="position: absolute; top: -966px;left: -966px>...</div> with a lot of spammy shoe keywords in there.
Example of hacked site is the UC police dpt: http://www.ucapd.com/ (checkout the front page HTML and look for shoes...).
My question is:
- how did this happen?
- how can we contact all those guys who have been hacked?
- where can I report this to an authority?
