    Hello,

    If anyone has some ideas, my index page has been replaced with a page that says, "Hijacked by Joker". How is it that someone can get into my cPanel account to mess with the files? How do I know if my hosting company has secured the server properly?

    Hello,

    This would be best taken up with your hosting company to see if they can check the logs to see what happened. If you are running any outdated scripts, you would want to update the scripts to the latest versions.

    Thanks.
