    Looks like they have been hacked, I'd expect them back very quickly after a quick clean up.
    They have not been hacked. That Google message is false. They are fighting with Google to get it removed. It has nothing to do with them being down. Something about an infected Google ad, that Google put on a bunch of sites.

    Good to see they are back up, it's massively frustrating when you have a site down and all you can do is sit around for hours waiting for backups to restore.

    So much for HDDs, I don't trust them. Another lesson about importance of backups.
