My site got hijacked!!!!

In this Box is supposed to be a pic. Refresh or click here for a bigger pic
I guess the above had looked familiar to a few now. I hope I got the term "hijack" correct because they were diverting people away from my site. My sincerest apologies for not looking into this problem earlier. I have not been coming to my own blog bacause I normally track your comments via e-mail. I found it a little peculiar when I went blog hopping to a few blogs but didn't really see into the problem because I thought the problem lies in my browser until I saw it being highlighted in LYN (Lowyat.NET).

The culprit has Advertlets.com because they forgot to renew the domain name and seems like their domain got renewed by adbaaz.com instead so all our traffic got transferred to their site whenever the Adverlets badge tried to load on our blog

What we have to do is remove the HTML provided by Adverlets.com from our page element (under Template Tab) to solve the problem because if we don't it would definitely affect our traffic.
