CypherHackz.Net was hacked!

CypherHackz.Net was got hacked by a hacker from Arab Saudi. The hacker name himself as Body (search “Hacked by Body” in Google) and claimed that my site is vulnerable. He also leaved me a message to patch the site.

At the time the incident happens, I was in a seminar and suddenly I got a SMS from my girlfriend. She said that one of my websites has been hacked. Then I asked her whether other websites got hacked and she replied, Yes. At that time, I really hope that the seminar ends as soon as possible.

The hacker probably gained the access from the security hole leaved by the unpatched WordPress scripts. Because I am busy and don’t have much time to online, I don’t aware that WordPress has released new updates to patch the security issues few days ago.

Although the problem has been fixed by my hosting provider, I still need to maintain and keep my websites are up to date with the latest WordPress version. If you don’t want your website be like mine, you better upgrade your WordPress now.

    hack = using of exploit
    real-hack = way to smart guy who discover bugs and makes his own exploits ( an takes overs servers, not websites using mysql injection – LAME)

    verry important to use this:

    create a .htaccess file and add this inside

    Options -Indexes

    stops directory listing ( very important ), ppl can’t see all your plugins ( many hacks are done trough wordpress plugins – wich can have bugs to, so try update them every time you get noticed to do it ) and other personal stuff

    some webmasters ( i can name them webmasters? i doubt ) store passwords (in .txt files ) into websites directory. – lame
