Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
Then I realized I was hacked a month later. The support people keep saying that I must update my password regularly to protect my domain but this has never happened on any other webhost, like GoDaddy.
Please help me out here guys what do I do...what are the best practices to stop this from happening again?
If you've had this issue you should use Google to see what people are saying about your host as I know a few that are severely infested.
One team member isn't nearly enough to validate code for security
Bill I'll have to admit I don't know exactly what the mod validation process is. I do know the guidelines set down are pretty strict to help prevent exploits from creeping in to begin with. It's my understanding the ones that do get rejected are usually because they don't follow the guidelines. There's a team of about 8 mod validators and only about 150 have been validated since about this time last year. They just added some "junior validators" to pre screen mods to help speed up the process.
