Criminal hackers force down volunteer site serving hemochromatosis help

Just a quick note to say that the website I created at is offline at the moment due to compromise by illegal access. It looks like criminal hackers forced their way into the server that hosts the site and installed their own code to launch DDoS attacks.

If you are not familiar with the site, it is an entirely volunteer project that serve up information and resources for people with hemochromatosis, a potentially fatal genetic disorder that affects millions around the world. Due to low awareness in the medical community hemochromatosis is widely under-diagnosed and often ill-treated, leading to a lot of needless pain and suffering.

I am working to restore the site, but in the meantime people who need more information about hemochromatosis can visit:
