Update: Ezegamer.com hacked!

December 1st, 2008

After my brother knew that his site was hacked, he immediately sent a ticket to his hosting provider WEB.COM.PH and the reply was this:

Hi Client,

We have received numerous reports from clients that their site was hacked. This is to let you know that all our servers are well secured from such attack. The reason why your site is being hacked is because of 3rd party scripts installed on your hosting that are not used or currently being used that were not being updated with the latest security update released by the provider. Below is the list of 3rd party script that most hackers attack.

Joomla
Drupal
WordPress
OSCommerce
Coppermine Photo Gallery

If you have installed any of the 3rd party scripts above or even those not in the list, we strongly suggest you upgrade/update to the latest release or update it with the latest security update available from the provider. For those clients who installed it for the purpose of studying and no longer being used, please delete them immediately to avoid inconveniences. If the script was installed using FANTASTICO, you can easily delete it by clicking the FANTASTICO icon in your control panel, click the corresponding script and click remove.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, please don’t hesitate to let us know and we will be glad to help you.

Thank you very much!

WEB.COM.PH Team

This was the reply of his provider. My brother was a little disappointed and decided to change his hosting provider to blogger. He liked Wordpress much then blogger but Wordpress made him disappointed. What can you say about this? Who’s fault is this? The Hosting Provider? Wordpress? or my brother?
