most of the sites are coming back again or giving blank pages


just remember

once hacked is always attacked

so review all of your defenses and upgrade them


* place a reverse proxy if you have a little money to invest (of another OS wouldn't be a bad idea) a reverse proxy is a proxy that is woking like a mirror and has only one function (showing on port 80 or 443) and NOTHING else.

* upgrade your firewall with an application defense


this was not new


it is time that hostingfirms have legal obligations to better defend their clients
