The Wordpress site for CartoBlog was hacked and it was attacking other sites at the host, so they locked the account until I fixed Wordpress. This was not unique to CartoBlog, it is happening to Wordpress installs everywhere. They just released WP 2.6.5 because of a serious vulnerability which of coursse is now being exploited heavily. If you have Wordpress blog, upgrade it to version 2.6.5 now!

Excellent - Glad it wasn't anything catastrophic. Great job, Nick!
