Help! We're being attacked!
I am not a webmaster, but I've followed your forum for awhile now to gain insight into all things IT. Now I find I need to appeal to you all for some help.
My problem is a recurring one. Our website is suddenly being routinely overtaken by malicious hackers. It happened again today for the third time in three days. My webmaster is able to restore everything rather quickly, but feels that somehow the hackers have gained a direct portal to our site, something he hasn't been able to ferret out. He openly admitted the problem is beyond his expertise, so I'm hoping someone on this forum will have some suggestions as to how we can scrub our site clean once and for all.
Our web hosting service hasn't been very helpful and seem to take a defensive attitude when I speak to them. They insist it's not from any fault on their part.
Any suggestions you could provide will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks to all.
