They posted on https://www.facebook.com/zootool on the 17th that they have been hacked.

Eight days down, and still counting, is not acceptable. Not for a professional website.

WordPress both .com and .org are amazing MVC for blogging. Period. Nothing else. If you want to write a magazine, post content or solely blog. You can’t go wrong using Worpress. If you want to build a tool or a web app. Forget it! Not the way to do it! Anyone that tells you otherwise, they don’t know what they are talking about.
