I am sad to say that all my websites were compromised due to security breach of my host company IPower as of March 10 2012
After numerous painful customer service calls and tech support emails, and countless frustrating and agonizing ordeal, no one seemed to realize the audacity of this security breach, which interestingly enough have been the cause of many down time for thousands of their customers in the recent years.
Somethings get better with age, by Ipower is getting worst by the minute!
Not to mention I found out that IPower Web have been hosting the very same Russian Hackers on their server that hacked in to their security and caused all the past and present issues.
First time, Shame on me, Second time, Shame on you, but common 4 times security breach in one year is beyond carelessness and stupidity
I am posting this blog in the hopes of finding others with similar painful experiences caused directly by Ipower incompetence and lack of secure hosting environment, please contact me or make a comment on the bottom of this blog, I would love to hear your story
Who would really allow anyone to access your controle panel and your most secure pages htaccess and modify your sites and redirect all your website to an unknown Russian web Url ?
No one except Ipower Web, here is more to read how
No wonder I power is nominated as one of top worst hosting companies on the planet
In my case I had to shut down nearly 20 of my websites and all my google peresence will vanish in a few days, once the search engines realize that my sites are all infected with virus, and the worst part is that I cant do a thing and I Power Tech support bounces me back and forth like a Chinese Pin Pong tournament
Here is a great website checker to see if your site has been infected or not
Protect yourself and your vsistors
