    I am loosing alot of money every minute. All of my "index" pages have been replaced with the image below... My password was over 10 random lower and upper case letters and numbers. I am fixing all the sites now, luckily I have everything backed up. just figured I would share what a great day its been!

    Happened to me last week same on Hostgator Submitt ticket at security @ hostgator they will recover your sites.
    Most Probably index files will be changed them to original.

    Try Newer version or Wordpress. to remain safe from these kinds of shits

    Yeah I never updated to the newer WP on any of my sites. I guess I will have to work on some better security. Luckily worth WP I just had to replace the index with a blank index.php. 95% of my sites are WP anyway.

    Why someone would hack sites and only put that image is beyond me... Atleast make some damn $$$$... :confused:

    Hostgator security is really bad, but atleast you didnt lost your stuff, that goes to show the importance of having all of your things backed up, regarding these guys they do this kind of things just to show off, not for the money.

    This has nothing to do with Hostgator.

    Stop using Wordpress, thats all.

    why not tell us how to patch the wordpress exploit instead of saying stop using wordpress? as if there arent literally millions of wordpress users as is.

    Update tim thumb plugins / php files

    There was a security flaw.

    I had my HG account hacked awhile back using WHMCS which controls my billing for my hosting reseller through them.

    Luckily, HG is great and they did all the fixing.

    The (usually) back up everything on your server one a week.

    GL though!

    were you using a lot of plugins? nothing wrong with using plugins but the problem is they might open a few doors to these i-got-no-life-so-am-gonna-hack savages.

    If you are using older themes of ElegantThemes or any other theme which uses tinthumb plug-in, that maybe the case.

    tinythumb.php has exploit which was officially posted Aug 1.

    I have updated this. Never noticed. Thanks!

    As far as NOT using Wordpress. I don't think I will be doing that anytime soon. I have way better results with WP and its simple to use. If this was something that happened everyday, maybe.
