Website Hacked

Filed under: Vol. 2 — admin @ 11:54 am

This website as well as all 7 of my websites has been hacked twice in the past 48 hours.  The attacks have been occurring at my account where all 7 sites are stored on the web hosting service. It was not aimed at me personally (I don’t think), as others are experiencing similar problems. Let’s just face it, there are some malicious assholes out there in the world.

The hacks have mainly been bots (I’m pretty sure) that insert bits of code into web pages. So far the code has done nothing more than break sites that use php scripting (like this one). The code is poorly implemented and the php pages simply fail to load and execute.

The databases appear untouched (so everyone’s private information is fine), but just to be sure I have restored them from archived backups.

I have implemented a few more security measures last night that I hope will keep the bastards out from now on. Fingers crossed.

I am in the process of rebuilding the site, bear with me.  All pictures must be re-uploaded from backups.
