[liberationtech] Help- Website hacked

Clearly you are watching the site carefully, but if you would like us to scan it in real time and alert you about problems, we can do so. I just need your permission and need to know where to send alerts. See http://cyberspark.net/ for more information about this. We only do this for people exercising free speech and promoting human rights.

Until you are back up and running the alerts won't tell you much.

A couple of very important things - you should try to figure out something about the hack and be in a position to prevent attacks or slow down attackers in the future. Shared hosting can sometimes be a factor in these attacks and your ISP may be able to track that for you. You should try to recover your logs before you restore everything! Meaning not only web logs but syslog and any other underlying system logs, if they are available. Web logs will help you (or someone else) analyze what might have happened if it was a web-based attack (such as a SQL-injection). You should also save everything that is left on the server before you restore things, because you may find remote shells and other clues that would tell you something about the attack vector.
