Matt Cutts wrote an excellent blog post named How google handles hacked sites. This is very interesting to me, since I had a similar situation with a client in the past (see Jennifer Convertibles Web Site Hacked & Delisted In Google.com). Matt documents each step as it happened, here is a abridged timeline:

November 18th - Site hacked November 27th - Google detected spam and hack on site November 27th - Google removed site from index November 27th - Flagged site in Webmaster Central console as spam November 28th - Sent email to several webmaster emails for site, to notify them (attempts failed due to email addresses not being reachable)

We then know the site owner did a reinclusion request, I do not know on which date. We also know, that the site was approved and should be back in the index within 24 hours from this post here.

Very interesting, indeed.
