    My website has been hacked!

    If anyone has nay thoughts I would appreciate it.

    My website www.pastors-source.com has been hacked. when you click on most nay link you will be redirected to another site that has been labeled as an attack site by AVG. The knucklehead that did nit lives in Russia somewhere (not that that is relevant). I have reloaded all the board files new but that has not helped. I do not know where the redirection code could be. Any thoughts.

    Without seeing the source of your site, it's impossible to say. Your web host should work with you to get this resolved. We assist our hosting customers with these kinds of problems all the time. Ask them to help. If you are paying for service, they should at least give you some pointers.

    you can reload your files as many times as you like and it wont make any difference if a file has been ADDED.
    you can see the source here "pastors-source.com" copy and paste in browser no http or else, just "pastors-source.com"
    Theres nothing wrong with the site, its the way you enter it thats wrong

    it seem to be in a root file somewhere because it redirects just the once, but once you get there its fine

    you need to contact vbulletin because some links are ok but others are not, and because they know the hierarchy of the files they can trace the location better.
    for example, you can do a search but cannot register etc

    I have contacted them but still no answer. The only thing I can do is go to the home page. Anything else redirects.

    If you can connect to your site using FTP or similar look in the root folder. It might be something as simple as adding an index.php file (or some other file that might take priority over index.html when loading the site).

    I expect to be back at some time in the future, although at present don't know when that will be.
    I've been here just a few days shy of six years, and those six years have been greatly blessed.

    Oh yes, and make sure you change every single password you've got on the site.

    Hi Revmitchell.

    Out of respect to the others that commented in this thread, I offer my advice. I'm a web developer and have helped many people in the past.

    Do this first.
    Contact your web host, find out what they can do to assist getting your website back up and running.
    If you have an HTML website without a database, log in to FTP and compare the server website files against the website files on your computer, don't delete the files at this point. Hopefully after your discovered that your website was hacked you didn't download your site files from the server, if you did, whatever script the hacker used is now included in your downloaded site files, don't re-upload your files.

    Revmitchell as a last resort if your website is HTML based with no database you can contact your host and have them re-load your hosting account, this will delete your entire account including e-mails etc. Only do this as a last resort, if you have a good web host they will help as much as they can.

    Second.
    Before deleting the files that don't compare to the one's on your computer, contact your web host and ask them how far back they keep backup files for your site.
    Keep in mind some web hosts will keep backup files of your site for only a month. All good web hosts create nightly backups.

    If you run a blog type website using Wordpress or the many others available today you may have a major problem. Wordpress uses a database to store web content, if you use anyone of these it's very likely that the database is corrupted as well, if you have saved the content and images separately, then all you have to do is delete the database and uninstall Wordpress or whatever blog style software, and start over.

    Here are a few tips to secure your website.
    You have the option in your host account to run your site under HTTS instead of HTTP, contact your web host for more information.

    Use SFTP instead of regular FTP programs, check out this program.

    Keep Your Software/Scripts Up To Date, if you run third party software or scripts keep them updated, it's not the job of a web host to update any software or scripts they don't either offer or support.

    The easiest way hackers can get access to your website is by guessing your password. Keeping a strong password is crucial and is the first step in protecting your website.

    Use a password with Upper case and lower case, numbers and symbols or characters. The longer the password the better. Change your password every 3 months.

    Also read what Google recommends to website owners that have been Hacked. My site's been hacked - now what?

    If you need and help. send me a PM and I will assist you.
    Good luck.

    what I see is this

    Warning: require_once([path]/includes/facebook/facebook.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/includes/class_facebook.php on line 13

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/pastorssource/public_html/includes/facebook/facebook.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php') in /home/pastorssource/public_html/includes/class_facebook.php on line 13
    Generally it means your host has updated from PHP 5.2 to 5.3

    Check the zone file for your domain. It may be that he has redirected traffic for your domain to an IP address of his choice. Get the IP for your account from your hosting provider. Check this ip against the "A" entries in your domain's zone file and make sure they match. Most hosting providers have an interface control panel to modify your zone file settings. Contact your web hosting tech support group.

    Peace
