When I woke up this morning and checked my sites everything was still alright but when I wanted to start updating DV Hardware I noticed that my site didn’t work anymore. All I got when I surfed to www.dvhardware.net was a blank directory index.

 Two things crossed my mind: either this was a temporary glitch or someone had succesfully hacked DV Hardware. After playing around a bit with PuTTY and scanning through the log files I found out that the site was indeed hacked. According to the IP address the hacker is from Romania. It’s possible that he used a proxy to hide his real identity but I’m almost certain that he is really from Romania as some of the stuff he used to break in is in Romanian.

 I hope everything will be back up and running within an hour. I have a pretty good idea of how he hacked the site so once everything is back online I’m going to patch the hole asap.

Was the hacker Turkish? No offense to the rest of the Turkish Population, but what’s with these idiots with nothing better to do?

AFAIK it was a guy from Romania.

I traced back the IP address that I found in my logs to Romania and one of the files he uploaded to my server had a Romanian name.
