Popsynth gets hacked (again)
The site was attacked again, this time a Phishing netbank login screen was posted in one of my upload folders. So much for Dynamic content! The IP addresses of the attacker are in New Dehli, India. Suspiciously that is exactly where my horrible hosting service Powweb is located. The day before the attack I had complained to them about the poor service and price hikes.
Powweb has a statement “One plan, One price” of 7.77 monthly on their main page. I had been paying that times seven for the sites I host. This year they decided since selling out to India and outsourcing that a 20 percent price increase was justified. After a horrible email battle the final reply from customer service was this: “We are sorry to inform you that we are unable to honor the rates that we have posted on our website.”
The previous successful hack was in May 2006.
