    After the first ScanAlert scan of the network and server there a few issues that I saw that needs to be fixed.

    So I submitted a support ticket to my host and this what I said

    This is their reply back

    From this you can see there are going be issues for those on a shared servers that have users that accept visa and mastercard.

    True, but I would expect most ecommerce websites to host on a VPS or dedicated server - there are several downsides to hosting potentially sensitive data on a shared machine.

    Go on, have a guess
    Indeed. The reply you got seems perfectly accurate and reasonable. Some of those report results are a load of rubbish, some are valid.
