Website hackings Sunday 11/7  Reply with quote  

We had an incident on Sunday Nov 7th that resulted in a few hundred users websites getting their index files replaced with a 'you've been hacked' page.

It started with user's website that was running some insecure scripts which allowed the hackers access to their account. From there they were able to further exploit a shared library that allowed them access to all other users websites and to be able to replace their files. The exploit was patched on Sunday so no further intrusion can happen via that method.

Any files there were changed were restored from our backups on Sunday as well. If for some reason your website is still not working correctly, please send an email to support@your-site.com.
