Hers is the latest on the status from the database owner, Amy
Just to put minds at ease, I've taken a look at the hack, and the site itself is completely undamaged. In fact, if you go directly to a pedigree page from a link, and not to the home page, it works. All the hackers replaced is the main page. I took a look at their code and I THINK it is free of viruses/trojan horses/etc. Obviously I cannot be sure. All I found were some linked .gifs and a .wma (video). Just to be on the safe side, I would stay off the site until it is fixed--and keep your browser security settings as high as you can stand (always). I will send another email when it is fixed.
I could fix the site right now. It would take 2 minutes or less. But I want my ISP to look at it first. They clearly have some security problem if the hackers were allowed to get in, and if I fix the site before they take a look, it will give them an excuse to ignore the problem. The next hacker may not be so benign, so whatever the security leak is, I want my ISP to close it.
