Submission + - Anti-Hacker Companies

Jason Mark writes: "A client of mine's website was hacked last week, and a few pages were changed to Russian (I *think*). This week, they got a call from a supposedly reputable "anti-hacker monitoring service", which struck me as suspicious. Has anyone had similar experiences, and if so what company called you afterwards? Is there a trend here? NOTE FOR EDITORS: I'm not *quite* sure about the categories... sorry if this is the wrong one. Also, the name of the company that called my client was www.scanalert.com, BUT I purposely didn't mention it because if it IS a coincidence, I don't want to hurt an innocent company with a potentially bad Slashdot story, ya know? Thanks,"
