    Hello

    Re: www.step57.info CPanel security problem

    I have had problems with the above URL which I believe is hosted in Russia – They have hacked my sites and compromised the security on the Server

    On the following URL's www.bsum.com/search - If you then do a search for say “Travel” you’ll see the page being redirected to www.step57.info
    The other website that I’m having the same problem with is: http://www.naturallyfirst.com/shopworld/phpcart.php?action=add&id=NF1007&descr=Special%20Offer:%20Buy%202%20Bottles%20CMS%20Force%20Get%201%20Bottle%20FREE&price=32.00&quantity=1
    - There is an iFrame code which has been added to a number of the pages that is causing pages to be redirected to www.step57.info

    I Googled the “step57” and came up with a number of websites with details on this problem and the website:

    5) Once the iFrame code has been deleted – how is it possible for the code to be added again to the pages?

    Answer)
