Project Description

Hostgator Hosting Account was hacked. Clean and Secure sit !!

My hosting account is constantly getting hacked every couple of months. I have a Hostgator account with about a few websites. When I go into Webmaster tools it says that I have "Severe health issues are found on your site." on 4 sites and 2 sites that say "Notice of Suspected Hacking".

Notice that there was malicious content on your account. Upon further investigation, we found that your cPanel password has been compromised, and was used to upload malware to your account. From our experience with malware of this nature, the user account passwords are compromised though viruses/malware located on your local computer. This malware sniffs out passwords used and stored by programs located on the computer. In order to protect against future attack, you will need to run full virus and malware scans on your computers to ensure that they are clean. I recommend using multiple scanners as we have found that some scanners do not detect the malware.

MalwareBytes ( [url removed, login to view] ) and ComboFix ( [url removed, login to view] ) have been reported to be able to clean this malware.

I need somebody who will clean the hosting account and do something to keep it secure for future hacks if that is in anyway possible.
