Default Makulu site hacked

After brief consideration on LinuxMint Debian edition, i decided to give Makulu a shot but then i just read this:

"The Repository server box is a complete mess. it has definitely been hacked and used to send out a DDoss Attack, therefore I will need to do a complete reload. I am too scared to even backup the data since I donít know what the hacker left behind that could be backed up as well.

I will have to do a complete reinstall from scratch and re-setup the Repo. This will take a good few days and I expect the Repo will be offline for at least a week, possibly more.

All users will continue to receive updates on their systems as normal, this does not effect end users at all."

Would this issue have any impact if i downloaded .iso from Distrowatch?
