Justinsomnia's WordPress install hacked

Justin has an amazing post called Search Engine Marketeers are the new script kiddies. I recommend that ALL WordPress bloggers read it. Especially if you use Dreamhost. (even you non geeks) Basically someone hacked a WordPress theme file on justinsomnia.org and inserted key words to influence Google Ad words. This caused justinsomnia.org to be removed from Google’s index. Thus making it impossible to search Google and find justinsomnia.org.

Cool thing is Justin investigated, found out what happened, and discovered who did it!

…the last two days felt uncannily like the Borne Ultimatum. Without the punching.
