Website Restoral - 16th September 2017

Postby Phil » Sat Sep 16, 2017 2:20 pm

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Due to unforeseen circumstances and a script being found by our service provider AussieScanners was placed offline until the issue was rectified.

I am currently working on locating and removing the rogue script and changing access to our backend. To my knowledge we have only been down for most of the morning. i apologise for not getting this resolved quicker, however i have been unwell today and this is the first time iv been able to get up

It was taken down by our host as a preventative measure, i have since done a restoral of one of our backups and im hoping that will have fixed all the issues, i will be looking at moving Aussiescanners to a more secure platform as i suspect the culprit has exploited the hosts server and not our service itself.

if you notice anything out of the mix from now please feel free to send me an email.

Generally these things are related to outdated or insecure software / plugins.

I'd be having a quick check through the Joomla/phpbb software and plugins and making sure those are up to date. I'd probably look at that first rather than the host itself.

Generally when an out of date plugin is found and exploitable, automated scanners then search the web for any sites using that plugin and exploit them without manual interaction.
