Hacked


Well, I just got hacked, and the hacker deleted all the files in my html folder of 2 of my sites and replaced it with a simple statement "Bug-Travel OoWwZz"

They were kind enough to leave all other files alone - but now I'm not sure how safe my server is.

So, I'm hoping y'all can tell me how to prevent hacks, what I need to do now, and do I go about finding out who did it?

Thanks

Need more info.

What type of server? Control Panel? Where you running any PHP, ASP, or CGI scripts?

Also look into your logs to see if you can find anything suspicious in there.

Check to make sure the hacker didn't open up any additional ports so that they can gain access to your server again.

BTW expect your site to show up at http://www.zone-h.com/en/defacements tomorrow morning. I guess it's their little way of braggin.

more info

both sites work together in the sense that they both use YaBBSE as their message board... they are linked together. There was a problem with security with YaBBSE before but that has been fixed.

Other info:

WHM 5.0.0
Cpanel 5.0.0-28
RedHat 7.3

I'll go download the access from the server now...

cPanel 5.0 I believe had a security problem that allowed hackers to gain access. I'm not sure exactly what, but I'm sure someone here can help you out.

I'd recommend immediately downloading WHM 6.0 and Cpanel 6.0.

these Bug Travel ppl are hacking on 24/7 basis, just check their name on the zone-h.com, is FBI so slow?

but it seems that most of the sites hacked are either from italy or greece, so hackers may be there too. (simple guess)

Yes indeed they are, I put in a report about two months ago and they are still free to hack....maybe zone-h IS the FBI?

it could be but it should be considerd as a "real" crime, as soon as few of them get behind the bars for 2-5 years, the rest would think of it twice before they try to impress their girlfriend (if they have one) by changing your HP into some "0wn3d by xxxx" thing.
