    In this case the article does not go into if there would be any indication to a user that this legitimate site was hacked.  As far as I can see, to mitigate this one, a person would need to regularly change their passwords unless I'm missing something? 

    In reality, if these website owners continue to neglect patching/securing and locking down their websites, this will keep going on.
