Someone has hacked my .MAC account. I don't know how or why. I just finished a website with a friend today, and it was going well with lots of visitors until this came up, please check it out : http://www.willyboynegro.com.
I'm no expert on web design, that's why I use iWeb...and I don't know how to repair this, please help me. He has changed my .MAC password...I can't log in or anything. I beg you, I have credit card numbers on my .mac email account and stuff. I can't believe it. Check out what the hacker said on my website am in desperate need for help.

WHAT CAN I DO?? SOMEONE HELP ME

EDIT: If you go here http://web.mac.com/jorgecucalon, you will see a completely different messange, followed by the hackers email on the bottom right corner

Well, thank God I had bought my .Mac account with a Family Pack, and my brother was the administrator. I just logged in with his account and deleted mine...Then I made it again and all is up and running again (under a different name though). The problem was with the "secret question"...it was too easy. Silly me. Thanks for your help anyway!

Yea, I can't believe anyone would leave private information on an un-encrypted system or a place that could be hacked. Take those numbers off, and check with your bank to make sure they are not being used now by the 'bad guy'.

Glad to see you found a solution to remove the account, but it maybe too late as far the credit card numbers go.
