Nabtron server was Hacked! we’re back up!

Sorry for the recent couple of hour’s down time on nabtron. One of the guy was exploiting our joomla based website on this server to hack people’s online bank account by phishing. We removed his files previously but he did it again. So this time we added a message regarding his acts that he is trying to hack people on his page, instead of removing the page from server here:

As a result, probably some one reported him and he exploited the joomla install and deleted the files on the server. But luckily we had the backup yesterday! :D (as i mentioned to one of our visitors recently when he inquired on how to secure his website, and my reply was to first of all back it up) So the time needed was to just restore and unpack the backup files and setup a new restore point.

It was a good lesson for us (and for that script kiddie too). Websites come up and go, I’ve made this site upto this small potential, if it’s all gone even, i can make it again, faster and even better, but what can’t be regained is the prestige, the guy who was trying to hack people’s bank account and use haram money…. how can he revert that sin! shame on him! I was just wondering what has his parents and teachers taught him all his life! (or maybe he is from those families where parents don’t teach their kids, just give them birth and throw them away?) Anyway… may Allah show him the right path…

  1. Glad to see you back up. I was getting 404 errors. Didn’t know what was wrong or happening. Glad you’re back :).

  2. They’d much rather design and fully own software than have it be partially in open source. It’s just the way it is sometimes in business, they don’t trust open source in part because they cannot own or sell it.

    1. i don’t backup very often, but like once a week atleast.

      But i am planning to setup some backup system (or modify some plugins available) to do auto backup everyday and also after every update to the site.

  3. yeah, i think i must do that, last time bluehost ‘s system down. i thought my sites hacked, i just pick up the phone to bluehost. they said their system down . shit. i wanna laugh and cry.
