Wow... I've been hacked

Woke up this morning, and checked the message board on my shareware site, only to find out that it had been defaced by some boneheaded "hacker" from Saudi Arabia. It was like that for a grand total of 45 minutes, before I restored the database backup that (fortunately) had run 4 minutes before this guy started to do his damage.

I looked into the logs, found out how the guy got in, and was fortunate enough that, even though this site isn't one that I personally host, the way this guy got in was something that I could fix. Spent the next hour or so getting upgrades made and holes patched, and now I'm good to go :-)
