My site got hacked by phishers

3 replies
My site got hacked by phishers and was being used to attack banks.

I got this email from a security company representing a bank.

Should I send them the log files that they requested ?

Should I ask my webhost for help ? Or should I just start over and secure my site myself ?

I am backuping up all my access logs and and FTP log files right now.

Email from security company

  • I would contact your web host right away. I wouldn't send that company any information.

      Do not send that company anything!! Contact your hosting company right now and let them know what is going on. I've been in IT most of my working career and sending that company the information they are asking for will cause you even more problems.

    Send that email to your webhost. Then do as they suggest.
