Well that sucks nuts.
Daft question, do you have a previous backup you can use to pull the site back up with?
Yes we had to go back to the 5th. It’s all simple servers had. It appears that whoever did it also managed to stop R1 backup working. Not only that they also ended all of my eBay listing. Not sure why they didn’t end my Amazon ones
What is more frustrating is not knowing how they got in. I now need to hunt down some backup software that will back the database up every day and automatically ftp it to me.
I recently found someone testing my site using the shoplift bug tester at http://shoplift.byte.nl/ I guess there’s only one reason someone would be using that on my site.
Probably worthy of a decent conversation on the weekly webinar.

Quick add-on – if you’re running your own VPS/dedicated, a good tool to setup on your server is fail2ban. This will auto-block IP access, and can be setup for multiple attack angles. Default is to check SSH access queries. First time I turned mine on it blocked 30,000 IPs in about 10 minutes…
Addon to this thread, a buddy had 3 of his Magento installs hacked 2 weeks ago, and all backups deleted (they were on the same server). Good point to remind everyone – make an off-site backup.
