Today I discovered I have been hacked. Arghhh!
The hack was possible because I had not secured Magmi well enough.

– deny all access to the folder through a .htaccess file, allow only my own ip address
Deny from all
Allow from xx.xx.xx.xx <- your ip adres goes here
– set file / folder permissions to 644 / 755
the link disappeared. Here it is:
