Top Ranking Pages Hacked, Clickbank ID Stolen

Help! I think my Affiloblueprint site has been hacked!

Ever since I shared that post with my high rank, I haven't made any sales from that specific account and found it was very odd...

Well it turns out my main page is a mess for some reason, and all my redirects in my hosting account for THAT domain have DISAPPEARED!

I have been robbed!!

Hi Rubanz,
The only way they could get into your Hostgator account is because they knew your password or you have some code on your site that allows a backdoor ( Trojan ).
You must have had a keylogger or spyware on your PC.
Use Roboform, as you don't have to press in the passwords.
Also, you will need to ask Hostgator to install a backup of your site before it got hacked.

Hope that helps.
Regards
Troy

Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize
they were the big things.

Ok good.
May I also say to members... Don't be lazy when it comes to scanning for spyware.
If you have a hosted site and are a member of different programs etc.. use different passwords.
I use roboform as well... there is also keypass
Have a good anti spyware program and scan every night.. or at least every 48 hours.
http://www.superantispyware.com is free and I highly recommend it.

Kind Regards
Troy
