    has anybody seen this or heard of these rat bastards. I have an article writing website and came to noice today that it was hacked and says that. No idea who these guys are or why they hacked my site, but a simple google search shows other sites also have beeen hacked by these losers.

    My site was a custom coded php site too, not sure how they got into it and changed pw and such. Any help on what I can do would be appreciated!

    Chances are you didn't do anything to provoke them. 90% of these types of "hacks" are teenage kids who are holed up at home that can run a vuln scanner and exploit your website. There generally is no rhime or reason behind it, other than your website had a common vulnerability that was easily exploitable.

    Seeing that all of the sites they hacked uses PHP. I would double check you have the latest version of PHP. And your code is properly sanitized. Check your log files, to see what they were trying to attack and backtrace it that way.

    I would also scan your website with a decent webapp scanner and see what it turns up. If all else fails, spend $50-100 to have someone do it for you.
