interesting. I hope that is not related to coranto at all, but just a problem with Kriko servers...

Looks like it's fixed now. Probably nothing to do with Coranto.

My site got in the way of a massive defacement by some muslims from Kuwait. The whole server was rooted, in my opinion, and then some index files were replaced. Fortunately only a few were hurt in my account and I had a recent backup copy of them all.

Some defacements have already been reported:

Here's a page I was fortunate not to get:

For a few months the file uploading system on my site had been on attack - PHP files and various viruses were uploaded with no success. My system was set up secure enough not to be penetrated by some hackers. I also banned the IP's behind the attacks.

During september and october my site also exceeded it's bandwidth limits and reached 24GB. The usual BW usage for it had been around 1-2GB (of 10GB max).

My opinion is that there were people working hard to get access to the server and they finally managed to do it somehow.

In any case, I have replaced the files and the systems should be operational, if you encounter any more problems feel free to let me know.

I just wanted to alert other Coranto users. I had a couple of different client's sites hack. All of the sites hacked had Multipart installed and active.

The hackers upload files for a phishing scam, for banks like Wachovia, and others.

Keep a close eye on your sites if you have any upload scripts.

True. And make sure to specify which file endings you allow for any upload field.

Thanks for the heads up here. I don't use an upload script myself, been stung by that in the past so I keep clear of them.
