Update: the hacker is now buying all the .info domains that match our .com domains and copied our content to them, added his adsense to them, and may try to sell these .info's on sitepoint.

Forgive my ignorance, but who are your domains registered with that allows this to happen, or how can it happen?

He somehow found out our password for our registrar and proceeded to transfer our domains to other registrars.
Sorry I don't think I'm allowed to mention who the lax registrar was here.

If the registrar did exactly as agreed upon, they weren't necessarily lax. Read
your agreement and you'll likely find it's your responsibility to ensure any and
all your account passwords are secure.
If user A accessed his account from Virginia in March, then accessed it while
on vacation in Vietnam in April, should he be blocked and required to call that
registrar for verification? While that can certainly help in preventing a possible
hijack, it can also inconvenience an nth number of users.
Probably a matter of which number is greater, I guess.
Anyway, just continue working with the registrar.

Do the usual DMCA thing to keep his stolen pages from appearing in the US based search engines. Won't help you with non-US SEs.
