Webmasters at the WebmasterWorld are reporting that Google is sending them mails regarding the website issues! Earlier also, the team of Google has been involved in sending letters to the webmasters out there.

Here is one such response:

“ I recently had a #1 ranking site for all it's major keywords get cracked along with 2 others I manage on the same server. It was done thru the ftp. That is what my host claimed anyway. They claimed I introduced it but this site had done so well I hadn't touched it in 6 months.
In my case, they did a little trick in my .htaccess file but it seems some hosts have some ftp make sure you change that password not just your cpanel.
BTW..Google has evidently creamed my #1 site now. So I decided to take this oppurtunity to revamp the site. Make lemonade from the lemons.
It's interesting google gave a heads up on his. Big G obviously thought it wasn't an intentional by the webmaster and must have recognized the pattern. Very interesting. ”

The email is filled with certain instructions on various topics like: how to remove the hack and clean the site, the consequences of hacking and more.

Discussion is going on at WebmasterWorld
