Wonder what the point is?

I tried to log on today to the site I'm advertising the B&B on, only to get a malware warning flash up, and also when I looked on Google there was an advisory 'this site may damage your pc' warning on the listing there.

I emailed them to ask if they knew what was occurring and recieved the reply that they had been subject to a 'really bad hacking attack and the site has been suspended' they've apparently got a 'specialist security company' on it, and are hoping to be back online in a few days, as soon as possible

One has to wonder why anyone would hack a site listing hotels, campsites and B&B's in Wales? What would be the point of that? Could any info I should be worried about be gleaned from them?

I did go on there a couple of days ago, to put a listing on, and overrode the warning, as I wasn't paying much attention Embarassed none of my security has picked anything up since though.

Prolly hacked by someone wanting to flog a "security" package. Rolling Eyes

It's a blasted nuisance - the schools are about to break up, it's a nice weekend, I've got no-one here...my phone could be ringing if the site was working. Grrrrrr.
