One of my webhosting account had been hacked so that my website redirects to another. Apparently the .htaccess file had been changed and the following addition found

RedirectMatch permanent ^/$

I have never given the Cpanel login to anyone. My other accounts on that server are unaffected. I wonder if anybody have any experience with this.

haven't had that, but I'm either crazier than I thought or every once in a while my htaccess files get deleted on a host or two. I thought it was the hosts doing it, but I could have been hacked I guess...
