    I've only ever had a site hacked once and all they did was change the index page, nothing else luckily!

    For more than 5 year on the web I was hacked twice.
    this is also happened to me on the old hosting, one of hosting accounts was compromised and hacker manage to get root access and changed index pages to all hosted sites.

    I also was hacked when used shoutbox script with vulnerability which later was uninstalled, it wasn't anything major either.

    Who are your providers? Did they not have systems in place to prevent hacking of most forms?

    How were you hacked and what occured with the hacking?

    Hi Dale, that was long time ago, my hosting provider was linkstream.net
    with shoutbox that was my fault, I shouldn't use it before checking how it's done, as it actually let you execute code inside it. The only thing which happened is they were able overwrite shoutbox page with blank one, no other changes to files were made.

    I don't know much details about other time when index page were replaced on many accounts, I doesn't bother much with this as they already got bad downtime already and I was looking to switch from them. With current hosting I don't have any major problems, uptime is good and problems are solved quickly. I'm on http://www.relmax.com/services3.html hosting right now.

    Back when I was young(er) and stupid putting all my sites on one host, one account, I got hacked by NeOTuRkX. They deleted EVERYTHING. And Changed the index page...

    The server admin hasn't been online since about a month before this occurred, and still hasn't answered my PM about it. It sucked.

    I haven't been hacked yet, but a friend of mine who owns a forum got hacked a few days ago by a person he knew.
    He got into a little fight with him and apparently the hacker knew what he was doing
