Recently, not only did my website get hacked, but our web host place got "creamed" by a hacker. It shows that your webmasters and even you, should have a copy of your site on backup CD. I have backups of both my sites, as do my two webmasters. The web host's backups even go infiltrated. During this, I was forwarded an article, not to illustrate this attack, but to show another facet of the hacking "game". I think the attached article is worth reading in it's entirety, as it shows the abilities of both the bad guys, but also the good guys. And it teaches about weakness in internet service. http://grc.com/dos/grcdos.htm Tell me what you think about it when you get the time.
