The "2 a" fits what has happened to my sites. The Hosting company says "it's all your fault. You should do better." Hey dude! I use your service because you're the expert and it's your servers that are ultimately being jacked.
I am somewhat of a Hacker. I enjoy taking things apart to discover how they work. That goes for computers, websites, databases, etc. I "HACK and ATTACK" until I understand.
It's time we call the bastards that "High-Jack" websites - Jackers. They maliciously inject code to steal, control, etc. for their own gain.
I, often, wonder if the companies that provide "protection" are not in cahoots with those that jack. I was offered a solution to fix my jacked sites at a cost of $300 - $500 per site
It's like the company offering me a solution and protection was "strong-arming" me. In my vulnerability, they were demanding money to protect me. Isn't that like a mafia tactic - Paid-For Protection?
I could go on but it will quickly turn into a RANT. I deleted all the files on my sites and I'm starting over. I know that I could have combed through all the files and deleted only the infected ones but I needed to clean up a lot of unused databases and users, anyway.
