    Hi,
    I have some malware on my website and I was hoping I might be able to categorically conclude how it has happened to avoid it in the future. I have some 'malware' that alters the meta data of the pages within the website. I contacted Verisign and they sent me a report showing the vulnerabilities of the server:

    • PHP Iconv Extension iconv_mime_decode_headers Function Crafted Email Subject Header Spam Detection Bypass
    • PHP Zend Engine Multiple Method Object Reference Access Use-afterfree DoS
    • PHP Security Bypass Vulnerability


    Could any of these 'critical vulnerabilities be to blame for the malware hack or, as the host company says, it was a vulnerability of the website running Joomla 1.5.26? I'd really appreciate your thoughts because the renewal is due very soon.

    Kind Regards
