Help My Site Has Been Hacked Twice


Recommended Posts

Hi I need some help. I have one oscommerce store, and it has never being hacked. On the other hand I have another website that has been hacked into twice. They deface the homepage. I'm running version osCommerce 2.2-MS2. Can anyone please help me out?


My hosting company just told me


I would suggest that to start with. Correcting the hole and replacing the file with

the updated version and we get two problems fixed at once.




The version of osCommerce you are using needs to be upgraded.



I was looking to replace the defaced file, however I notice in all your backups the

file is the same.



includes/languages/english/index.php is the file that contains the defaced page.



Thanks for your help --Josh

Check your permissions.


Files should be no higher than 644


Folders should be no higher than 755

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.
