    Hi - Hopefully someone can help... I was recently hacked and my current copy of my mysql DB is compromised. The bad guys must have placed some type of exploit into it that is preventing me from restoring it via the restore feature in cpanel. Each time i try to restore it, i get a background image that the hackers must of placed on there and my OS freezes up. How can i find the exploit they placed in the DB? It seems i should be able to find the
    background image, however i am not sure what the file name is.. Has anyone heard of this before or make any suggestions on how to find the exploit if that is what i am dealing with?
    Thanks in advance.
