ProPakistani Hacked - Contains Links to Payday Loans Site

ProPakistani.PK is the leading website in Pakistan which covers the Pakistani telecom sector and IT news. It is quite popular in Pakistan where it has gained an Alexa rank of 153. Today I noticed a weird thing on their website when I opened their website on my mobile phone. I found a link to quick-loans.tripod.co.uk in their header but if you open it on your computer, it is not shown. On further investigation I found that the link was hidden using the following code:

<body class="home blog unknown"><ul style=" height:0px; overflow:hidden"><li><a href="http://quick-loans.tripod.co.uk">http://shortloans.tripod.co.uk</a> payday loans</li></ul>

On opening the website nothing shows up:
Propakistani hacked - 4 July 2013

But when I looked at the source code of the website, I found a link to Payday loans website:

Now there are only two possibilities of this:

A) The site is hacked.
B) Aamir Attaa (owner) is selling links on his site.

I think the option A will be true. There is a lot of heat going on with the spammy Payday loans showing up in the SERPs having links from hacked sites. Google also shows a notification in the Webmaster tools if it detects any unnatural links on a site. Probably Aamir Attaa is unaware of this situation.

You can also see the hidden link by going to view-source:http://propakistani.pk/. Then search for payday loans to see the hidden link.

If Aamir Attaa is reading this, then I strongly recommend him to remove the links ASAP.
