Hi, Jonathan:

       Thanks for letting us know.  I can't imagine that the 
unavailability of RSiteSearch would be more than an inconvenience.

       When you get time, I'd like to know more about what you know 
about how it was hacked, the host operating system, any anti-virus / 
Internet protection software that failed and anything you think might 
reduce the risk of a repeat in the future.

       Best Wishes,
       Spencer Graves
