Last February 19, I decided to finally transfer my blogs to its own dedicated servers. I bought some dedicated IPs for my blogs. For a day or two, I thought the transfer went well… then came 4 of my blogs are down. I checked my cpanel only to learn that my blog files are gone!
We only thought there might be some glitches so I really install my files again. The down time went on for one week. The technical support we were able to talk to said somebody has hacked into my files and injected a script, an auto-remove script that deletes my files inside. And it means everything!
Then came Monday night when a technical support emailed me that my blogs has virus and it already infected the servers. Because they need to clean the servers, they didn’t let me re-install my files for more than a day, they also need to monitor their server status. My hosting provider said that the attack came from my posts, through a plugin, from a certain Paid To Link service.
Now that the servers are clean, they advised me to upload new files. Clean files without infected scripts. The problem is, how will I do that??? It means I can’t upload my backed up files because they might be infected as well. And if I manually retrieve my posts, what will happen to my posts permalinks which I’m sending out to my advertisers for their reviews?
Good thing, my best friend is always there all through out the heart breaking process of knowing my blogs has virus, and she also helped me how to resolve my problem. Right now, I’m praying… and praying hard that this solution will work out.
Right now… I’m still praying… please be alright from now on
PS. Plug-in from POSTLINKS is what my hosting provider saw that infected and attack my files and their servers. SO BEWARE! Already sent them an email, they replied and asked for more information, so I gave them what they need. As of this writing, I’m still waiting for any updates from them.
