Server 1 hacker

It seems a hacker/bot got through Server 1 unfortunately. The hosting accounts seem intact, as far as I looked. I have issued a shutdown of the server for the mean time, I'll only put it back on to transfer accounts.

I will be moving all accounts of active people (last post date) to a new server in the next few days. If you want to be sure that your hosting account is going to be transferred, please post here.

I'm sorry for the problems this has caused.

Not good news for sure. BUT every dark cloud has a silver lining and we heard from Bondings:

We're definitely grateful to you for baling us out, many thanks!

Thanks for your service for frihost users.

It was easier to transfer all the accounts. I'll remove accounts an other time. I only left out the suspended ones.

It's currently transferring and restoring accounts. It seems to go pretty fast, so maybe done in an hour or two.

My Website is up again thanks Bondings! Cool
deanhills on Wed Jul 02, 2014 9:13 pm
The transfer of the accounts is finished, but it will take a while for dns to work for the new server (for some people).

You can reach your cPanel on . Please check your website as fast as possible and make sure it is working fine.

I have now once again shut down the hacked server.

Good to see you around Bondings Wink

I'm going to use the old server for the server move of Server 2/3 and will hence have to erase its contents. If you have any missing files or your account was not transferred or anything similar, this is your last chance!
Bondings on Mon Jul 07, 2014 7:33 am
Yeah nice to see u back here, we almost gave up.

Ah It's Server 1 Not Server 2. Well hope everything will be fine soon. ))

Hi Bondings, may I know which backup copy date were the accounts recovered to? Mine seems like an old backup copy.

I'll also check through my own backups.

EDIT: Found an issue with a previously created database account. Recreated an account, re-linked the database and fine now.

I am seeing that there are some problems on Firhost. Any reason to be worried about my we site ?
corail on Tue Aug 19, 2014 9:49 am
Any answer please?
corail on Tue Aug 19, 2014 1:08 pm
If you are just worried to lose your website you should be taking regular backups so that you can restore your site, here or somewhere else, in case something happens. If your site requires high security you should probably be worried, but then you should probably be using HTTPS which is not provided by Frihost.

Thanks for all efforts towards resolving it
adepeter on Wed Sep 03, 2014 1:46 pm
I agree with adepeter.. .

there any prevision to Server 1 again?
rafael2112 on Sun Nov 09, 2014 11:51 am
Rafael, as far as I know Server 1 is OK, in really good shape in fact. Got sorted out quite a long while ago. Thanks to Bondings.
deanhills on Sun Nov 09, 2014 8:31 pm
how to set auto back ups?
mistertoya on Sun Nov 09, 2014 11:33 pm
@deanhills Server 1 is OK, the problem is on my site, really. Good work Bondings...
rafael2112 on Mon Nov 10, 2014 5:32 am
Oh great, now everything's just gone and I should have known through a blog post? Confused

Well, yeah. It was also a featured discussion, immediately apparent as soon as you log in to the forum.

I note that you hadn't logged posted since March... it's now the end of November. You'd have seen the announcement in a timely manner had you logged on and contributed, as necessary to maintain hosting and outlined in the FriHost ToS.

GREAT to see you posting James007! How about opening a few hosting accounts?

The hacking is ancient history. We've got major uptime on Server1. Bondings has us on one of the best servers in Europe. Check it out and you'll see. Offsetting positive is that Bondings has rewarded those who stayed with extra disk space and bandwidth. We're in clover right now. And since guys like you are inactive, the Server is lightning fast, we're doing even better. Razz

Thank you Bondings.

Maybe a Captcha next to the submit button would prevent bots from creating new discussions and so on.
Many of the forum discussions are bots clipping something from the wiki.

I agree with adepeter.. .Thanks for information Smile
