I am so tired of hackers and keeping vigilant against them. I'm running 7.2 and Sentinal 1.2.0. then without warning from my webhost I get suspended .. THEN notified!

I'm moving to another webhost because my current one are idiots when it comes to Customer Service ... but here is what they told me in 1 of many, many emails ...

Quote:
Your account was running the following abusive scripts:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 18132 Jun 7 11:53 flooder*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 17109 Jul 29 10:12 hider*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 40112 Jul 29 08:47 ktundernet*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 14308 Jul 29 11:46 php*
-rw-rw-rw- 1 6 Aug 2 13:25 trs.pid

These scripts were used to make abusive connections to other machines which led to complaints made against our server.

Are you running phpNuke or phpBB?


And, this was AFTER they suspended me. I guess these were gifts left by hackers ...

Then they told me I couldnt run phpnuke anymore .. i asked what about all their other sites??? well, then it was only sites experiencing this type of attack ... geez

I have found a new webhost and am going to leave my current one even tho I'm paid up thru April '05.

THEY are supposed to be the experts not me. Then they asked me to delete the scripts .. the ones i didnt know were there in the first place!

Here is my last communique from LunarPages.com

Quote:
Phone support has notified me that you will upgrade your phpBB and phpNuke and
install security patches to help resolve the situation. Hopefully removing
all your files and uploaded a fresh install will do the trick. The previous
files may have been removed by our tech, to prevent further exploitable.
However, we would not be sure if all exploits were removed, which is why we
ask you to remove any file that was not uploaded by you.

Your actions are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your cooperation and
understanding regarding this matter.

I hope you have a pleasant day.


Very tired and depressed,
Panthera

Panthera,
I too left LunarPages, and I think their support, and policies are quite lacking. And I sure do not like the fact that they will not refund any of the cash we've paid them.

I am hosted with the best PHPNuke hosting site there is, in my opinion. The support is great, the owner actually knows what he is doing and actually has a clue what true customer support is. You might have heard of this hosting company, it's becomming more and more popular. Wink

RavenWebhosting Rocks!

I can give you a jailed shell access conditionally, meaning I need to understand why you need it Smile. Email me your hosting requirements.

Well I think it falls more under want then need, I'm just an old command line dog and just find it eaiser sometime to get to that blining curser Smile

I'm at work, but I will send off a email to you when I get home about what I am looking for in a host and maybe we can work something out that will please us both.
