Upgraded to 2.7 and removed from Google

I’ve finally upgraded my blog to WordPress 2.7 today after I got an e-mail from Google. Apparently, somebody or something got onto my site and placed some links to a third party site in my footer. The links were not visible on my site, but were hard coded into my footer and were visible to Google and other search engines. My site will be removed from Google for 30 days. I have since removed the content from my site and have added to be resubmitted to Google. It’s just a pain that this happened in the first place as I have no idea when or how this happened. Guess it pays to keep your passwords updated.
