    Just like all of you, I got the dreaded email saying that my 2 sites are gone and no backup is available to restore them. I'm curiuous what your next step will be. Mine is cancelling my services ASAP and moving to a host that actually does a backup. I can't believe the idiots are offering me a month free as compensation for losing all my data and hundreds of hours of work. I'm hoping everyone else affected takes their business elsewhere.

    Unfortunatly I was on a years subscription, but I have cancelled it and am on a new server already. I took a backup of all sites last week when they were up and down like a yoyo so its just gruntwork for me to get them all back and running the way they were. Guess the best thing is to cut your losses and post on all similar forums to avoid them like the plague.

    Basically they wiped all servers with no backups available for most people. They are saying they were hacked.

    Seems like a nightmare for all the customers, hopefully most of the customers have an up to date backup.

    Yeah, here too.

    Does anyone know if there are any backups being restored or coming soon...or are they just "gone"?? We're getting conflicting reports from incoming customers - so we don't know if we should continue to try to get the data for them, or just give it up?

    I don't think anything can be considered reliable in regards to the information. I just think it is unfortunate that there are lots of people whom host sites that bring in a portion or all of thei income and those lives have been impacted.

    Regarding the backups I think it would be safe to say they are gone as well. It sounds like who ever was in these servers had root access. That is just speculation though.

    After dealing with WHP for quite a while now I am totally convinced that the whole email is a scam on their part.

    I can understand one server being attacked, but all of them?

    Anyway I am sure the server I was on is perfectly safe, simply because I don't think it is possible to attack an offline server (unless someone walks into the datacenter with a bit axe )

    Folks, if you don't have a backup you have no option than to start from scratch.

    And if you do then why haven't you moved yet?

    It's fairly common for bots to try to exploit entire IP ranges, I see no reason to doubt their reasoning.
