HOG under attack again

The hackers are at it again. I just thwarted a hacking attempt. The site suddenly said something about erectile dysfunction or some other kind of spam with a bunch of outgoing links.

I’ve done some more checking and I’d recommend my blog friends check your files. I have a banner script which runs the wide banners just below the header. Apparently, since 12/15/06 a completely foreign folder titled “f” was resident there. Inside “f” were a bunch of sub folders named with numbers. Inside each of those folders was some type of spam link. Here’s an example : my-server-root/banneradfolder/f/4/spam-spam.html

Check your source code, your folders and make sure all your sever scripts are up to date. I remember golfchick telling me she had some problems too. Maybe she was being hacked? The hackers are after us.
