    They are being attacked by iframe injections..the entire IP range they have. They wil NOT tell you this but only threaten to ban your acct if repeatedly hacked. I even walked thru and locked down all with a supervisor and several were hacked within an hour. I have had all my sites there down now 3 times this month (and currently 37 again) Russian or chinese script kiddies it seems.This was AFTER locking everything down so tight I could not even upload an image without a chmod change. Looks to be exploiting a plugin so deactivated all and those still up. Will let you know if I found the weak ass coded piece of shit that is responsible. I can say for sure it was one commonly used here on BHW as some of my sites have just a few plugins and are still vulnerable. Zero day exploit and the 'kiddies' having fun injecting pepsi ads

    Keep your eyes always peeled to security forums as well as hacker forums and you'll see the zero day exploits and should have enough time to protect your own sites before they get hit. Script kiddies will never stop even if they know ahead of time they don't stand to gain anything from a particular site.
