Well, now, THAT'S interesting...

A while ago, I wrote about an outfit called a2b2.net, which was hosting a number of phony PayPal and bank sites designed to dupe people into giving up their financial information.

A short time later, that particular server went offline, only to come back a few days later as a site that sold and distributed software for hacking Web servers and setting up phony bank and PayPal sites.

Well, now things take a turn for the strange. It appears that Web host has been hacked, and every Web site running on the entire Web host has been wiped.

Hm. When you go to bed with monsters...

I know he has a2b2 up, possibly VAServ, but if I recall, I was hosted by CheapVPS. I just checked the domain (cheapvps.co.uk) and I get a 502 error, so I figure it's not been restored. It just makes me think that if I were still with him, I'd have lost my websites.
