    Default Possible Hack

    I was informed today that the site may have been compromised again. I have very little time to dedicate to this until this weekend. If anybody runs into anything, i would appreciate knowing what you saw.

    Thanks
    Steve

    I went browsing through the files and I found a bad file in there. I tried to open it but I was denied access. So, I deleted it. It shouldn't have been in there.
    More than likely it had no purpose other than to cause some harm.

    Another round of password changes and all the other stuff involved with this kind of thing.

    Steve, you must be a wiz at computers. I would not even know where to look.

    I just look for files that were modified recently. The file in question was modifed on 5/12/2012 or sometime around there. I wasn't doing anything then so I figured that was it.

    PLUS... when I tried to open it my virus detector detected a virus.

    I got redirected today with the google thing. Said there might be an issue. But it looks as though you have already corrected it since they were last here.
