    Hi there. I have a little e-commerce website and it's hacked. The Index.html is overwritten with this message.

    HACKED BY iSKORPÝTX

    TURK HACKER

    [email protected]

    My secured form mail and everything else seem to be working fine. I would like to know how serious this problem is for e-commerce website like mine..( simple website with product info/pics and Secured form mail for ordering )

    What do you ppl. suggest me to do ? I just deleted the file and put back the original index file for now. Should I close the website and look for more secure web servers? or is there anything else I have to do ? Please help!!

    Thanks.

    Hi Nanahime222,

    The first thing would be to contact your web host and ask for some sort of assurance that they do have adequate security arrangements regarding the secure form side of your site.

    I've just had a look round for other evidence of this hack. It looks like someone has found out how to hack the main page of a website, and is now doing as many as he can. (see screenshot attached)

    Checking Google, it seems he mainly prefers to concentrate his talents on German adult sites, but, it looks as though he is starting on small business sites (4578.netfirms.com for example). It's possible that he's found a way to hack one particular server, and once bored with it, he'll give up and get a life. :)

    Again, in the first instance, I would contact your host.

    Hope that helps

    Cheers

    Liam

    Unless you are selling white supremacist donkey porn on that website of yours, you shouldn't really have any trouble from real hackers. You just need to watch out for all those 13 year old script kiddies who get their kicks from annoying people ever so slightly.

    If you're host has got decent firewall protection, that'll be enough to keep them out, although they do say "the more, the merrier..."
