    Hi, I just had two site "hacked" title page indicates root hacked by Risky.

    I deleted all files and re-uploaded with no success indicating a root problem.

    Contacted seo-host and 20 minutes later it looks like one of the sites is back up...maybe they are able to fix this? or the problem has worked itself out...LOL..

    Anyone know of this type of stuff?

    correction only the home page is currently up on one of the sites...

    Just some skiddy behaviour. They probably bought root access off some hack forum.
    Any decent hacker would've injected something far more profitable without leaving a trace
    instead of some lame defacement.
    Host should check server isn't compromised, There are plenty of roots for sale if you look
    in the wrong places.
