Montana Webmaster site hacked

Am I running around in a panic? Nope! I have a load of laundry started on a mechanical washing machine that can't be hacked. And, I've taken a shower. And, I've made some posts, and checked my email on one account.

But, what did I do about the hacked site. Well, first I'm so glad that the hackers let me know through a Facebook message or I wouldn't have been able to get a screenshot before the web host took the site down. So, as I promised, here is what my site looked like starting yesterday evening, based on the file date of the file that created this home page.

So, the first step was taking screenshots! I wouldn't want you all to miss out on the fun!
