    I use this Website Defender and today it gave a report that my website was reported for SPAMHAUS

    It's on shared server.
    It's rarely updated website and I don't really don anything with it, let alone SPAMMING.

    I'm confuse and don't know what to do.
    Was it other people on the same account which share the same IP address who abuse the network or is it someone hacking my site?

    Spamhaus operates on IP addresses and domains - use the lookup tool on the Spamhais site to find out more info concerning the IP and domain. If its a shared server, then someone else on your server is probably violating their T&C ;)

    There is another probably explanation - the server has been hacked and the mail server has been hijacked - or poor security just plain exposes the mail server. In a typical shared hosting environment, all domains are using the same mail server program.

    What does urlvoid report?
