Actually, the hacking has been a problem on SLHost's servers. A couple weeks ago all of my sites on my resller account had anything named index.* were replaced with hacked files. It turned out it was the entire server not just my reseller account. They had been as they put it "Rooted".
They took the server offline, repaired it and restored from backup, I'd lost a day's worth of data but things were back.
What really upset me was when they didn't follow up with the backup and the next morning something had hung up and it did a restore again from the 'pre-hack' data making me loose a second day's set of data.
Since then the hacking issues seem to have been resolved, I had one directory that ended up with an injection happening simply b/c I'd left it as 777 and didn't have an index.html in it. I fixed that and havn't had a problem since. I'm being extremely cautious though as their servers appear to be a steady target (or someone on their servers is at least).
