Hacker

Recently this site was hacked into, not once but twice in a two week period.

The hacker apparently used the site to distribute some unix files. No files were removed from the system, and there were no security files (Credit Cards or Social Security Numbers) files as risked.

Based on some investigation it also appears the hacker came from someplace in Asia.

I have added additional levels of security and monitoring to make sure this doesn't happen again.

If you have your website hosted, you should do a security audit to make sure that no one can get into the system. You never know when you will use your website for sensitive data.

BTW, a Hacker should not be confused with a Hack. A Hack is someone who got a easy high paying government job because they know someone in the current administration.
