    Site hacked

    The one who set up the site I work on has disappeared. The site was attacked at about 5:30 central timezone. I need to acess the account to fix the site, but seeing as we can't find the one we are screwed. Any ideas.?

    You should get a host that is available 24 hours a day.

    Any host that disapears should not be relied on.

    Its not the website that got hacked its your buletin board system which should be updated to the latest version most likely.

    I assume you do not have the username and password for the account??

    The username is most likely "jpafterm" but without password you will have a problem.

    You mention that someone other than yourself set up the account. If this person also runs the hosting company on whose servers your site resides, you really have no other option other than to contact this person no matter how difficult this may be.

    However if this other person merely set up the account for you but otherwise is not the hosting company themselves, there is the possibility that the hosting company would provide you with the account username and password. However if you are not the account holder (and, for example, this other person is), the chance of getting the account details from the hosting company are very very small - and this is still dependent on you knowing who the hosting company is.

    There is nothing you can do without the access codes.

    If you have a backup copy of the domain you can move it to a new host as long as the domain name is registered to you.

    This is the whois for the domain:

    person: Steve M.
    nic-hdl: SM623-GANDI
    address: JP Aftermath
    address: 1001 Harrison St.
    address: 32780
    address: Titusville
    address: Florida
    address: United States of America
    phone: +1 3212644765
    e-mail: vanillawafer1000@yahoo.com

    If you are steve and your email vanillawafer1000@yahoo.com is working you should have no trouble swiching your domain to another host.

    If you are not steve then you should try to contact him since he is the one that is listed as the owner of the domain.
