President of French Polynesia (presidence.pf) hacked?

presidence.pf is the web site of the President of French Polynesia, it is hosted on by the Tahitian ISP MANA (along with an alternative domain of presid.pf).

Unfortunately, that's not the only thing lurking on Yesterday I spotted an exploit kit on the same IP, probably Blackhole 2. An examination of the server shows the presence of the following malicious domains on the same IP:


There's no evidence that the websites presidence.pf or presid.pf are dangerous, but there are other web sites on the same server which certainly do appear to be quite toxic..

Now, French Polynesia isn't the biggest place in the world, but it's the first time I've seen the site of a president of anywhere potentially compromised in this way.
