OK it's fixed these vermin are replacing the index files with their own. I have everything locked down as tight as I can get it but there is a hole somewhere in the isp's armour..............sigh.

The CD Store page has disappeared   :-[   So have downloads, features, and editions.  Part of the hack, I imagine. 

I'm surprised the ISP hasn't taken action. If someone can get at the Vector site they can probably get at others.

I think it's looking good,  but the Mailing List link is not working at the moment anyway.

*sigh*  time for new host with real security measurements. Obviously the current host isn't doing well, and the security holes are on their end. There's not much that VL can do to make the site anymore secure if the host is leaving doors wide open.

Although, it DOES make you wonder why the VectorLinux site is the target,,,, repeatedly.

Note to the Crackers:
There's other sites out there, go show us some REAL skills and go for the challenging ones ;) , I'm not impressed that one can attack a site that is hosted on a minimal security host.. nope, sorry, showing me no skills there, and I've seen better.
If you're looking for a job, you're going about it the wrong way. It's better to just drop in and tell us your skills in whatever department and what you can do for us, instead of trying to show us what you can do against us on a minimal security host ;)

At least one advantage from those "hackers" - It's obvious that the host is vulnerable to those kinds of attacks (and this is the reason for "hackers" to cracking the site again). I wouldn't be suprised if they'll hack it one more time.

BTW, I've got a question regarding the forum's feature. Where can I ask it?

vector, the website is looking great. Could you place a link to the MMBD site either in the Menu or the Web Links section for me? That way there's a link to it directly from the main page. Thanks!

EDIT: Could you change any links to it to www.vectorlinuxsolutions.com ? That'd be great as that's where I am going to have my website.

Subscribe to mailing list is not working. I got redirected to this link http://www.fullsystemsinc.com/cgi-bin/dada/mail.cgi with this message:

The script had an error or it did not produce any output. If there was an error, you should be able to see it in the error log.

Since it seems so trivial for our homepage to be hacked, and considering our site was recently moved to a new server, I gotta ask: Is phpwebsite the problem here?

Maybe. Since this is now the 6th hack (maybe more?) in a little over 2 years now, of our website and/or forum, I suspect we are considered an easy target and our website link is probably listed in hacker/script-kiddies forums/newsgroups - as they seem to be different hackers each time - but I could be wrong.

I think we need to seriously look a the versions of whatever software we are using and go through the security websites to see what might be our weakpoint(s). What a pain in the butt...
