A totally unrelated event and of horribly poor timing. I can't even begin to explain how frustrating it was when my provider locked down the site for security reasons when I was right in the middle of rebuilding it. Apparently some bots/hackers had used some weaknesses in the comp- and fanzine-databases to infest the side with malware. We had a similar occurance a while back, but this time I could actually see the infected files for myself(!). Rather than spending weeks fixing Corro 2.0, then scapping it a few weeks later, I decided the only feasible solution was to speed up the process of finishing what I've started.
...and for the record I'm not paranoid enough to think anyone attacked the site for any personal reasons - things like this is likely to happen to any site displaying these kinds of security holes. It has now been amended. For the time being.
