Hacked :(

One of my sites, which I don’t even pay attention to, got hacked recently thanks to an exploit in an insecure script called sNews. The script has since been patched. It wasn’t really hacked, more like a defacement as the only thing this script kiddie did was overwrite my index.php file and some lame attempt at trying to use a shell script on my server. I’m not going to mention which site it was because the domain it uses has blatant trademark issues and I don’t want to associate my name with it due to legal reasons. This is the first time I have ever had anything defaced or hacked, so I will make sure to use up-to-date scripts from now on to prevent these dumb script kiddie attacks.
