    As most of you are probably aware - Casinomeister was hacked into (main folder - front page) over the weekend. The reason for this was some script I still had installed on the site. There was a vulnerability detected and a hacker began hitting up all the sites that still had this installed .The announcement of the vulnerable script was made on the 7th, and I got hit on the 9th. Hackers can move fast.

    What I did was shut the site down, had it tarballed and downloaded it to my harddrive. I uploaded fresh files which took most of the day yesterday, and I still have more to go.

    Now Casinomeister is an old site - relatively speaking - you wouldn't believe some of the old unused scripts I still had lying around. They are gone now.

    Lesson learned: the hack more or less inconvenienced me during the weekend. It gave me the opportunity to "cleanse" the site of any possible damaging script - and it made me smarter. My server guys turned me on to this website You must register/login in order to see the link. which monitors security issues. You can also search their archives for any scripting problems that make concern some of your installed programs. It would be wise to check this out.
