I don't know much about frihosts security but I think its mainly up to you to secure your site. Make sure your password for DirectAdmin is very secure and all your FTP passwords are secure and your database passwords.
If your site is driven by PHP and MySql then its really up to you how secure it is. Make sure you never trust anything that a user inputs into an input field or an url they enter.
he said he got in via ftp and said no security but all my ftps have passwords
You got it back using that password retrieval link?
Apart from changing passwords also make sure that you have given right permission for folder and files (CHMOD)
nope i just simply asked them so many times they gave me controll back. iv done a bit of resarch and found they could of got through my forum at least i think so. i just hope it doesnt happen again i was worrying like crazy i have a really bad headach now.
what do you suppose my chmod permision should be for my forum index its currently set to 777?
just have to be more careful about the PHP scripts and mods you install on your site. if you got hacked there was probably a security problem with the forum script or whatever it was you were using. I would contact the makers of your forum scripts.
I can help about security if i start to get involed about it, for anyone who wants something for defence and not for attack becouse we might open a war then which is not neceserary at least at the time been...
This is the portal from where the turkish hackers came from sonvurus.org

THE TEAM IS CALLED Hacked By MephisTo
Team: | Zorbey | Delpi | Axel | Kamashira | K!Ko | Albert | |Kol3r@|
Has there been any news on the process of this report you've made.
I cant find their site on the net i think the report was affective.....
I dont want to start a war i have better things to do with my time or i will attack when i am prepared to be invsible from counterattacks...
Try my site it has a link to a powerfull IDS... more in the fututre
i dont think attacking will be a very good thing especialy if it can cause wars. its best just to report them as much as we can to make sure they get caught for their hacking
my site has been safe for 2 weeks now since the hackers attacked is everyone else ok. if your fihhost website has been hacked please post it in here. also any news on the hackers?
yep make sure you use secure passwords... for example i use passwords like this... hgf543 it is quite secure and not many people can guess that.
and i change my password regularly
ans no that password i don't use for frihost... or anything... made it up on the spot!
