was to hack.
legalities, it's illegal in England to gain access to one's restricted web
files. Then again, others argue that if it's open for attack, it's not illegal
as the doorway was always open.
It wasn't DDOSed, it was cracked into and changed. That is very illegal indeed and I know who did it or ordered the attack, hooray. Hopefully the logs will show what happened in greater detail.
The /wordpress bit was the bit hacked, but I don't have FTP access to it so I can't tell whether the data was overridden.. was it?
can prevent common exploits by keeping your server up-to-date as well as
ensuring the code you use is secure.
Apache 2.0.54 with custom patches on FC5 or FC2, can't remember which.
