My index.php was deleted?


Recommended Posts

With CC611, it is conceivable you may have been hacked.

CC6112 has a critical security update. Exploiting that vulnerability - which very possibly might exist in CC611 - could eventually lead to all manner of mayhem, including deleting files.

The admin hijack vulnerability was fixed in CC607.

Still, you might want to mention your issue to your hosting provider. There is the possibility of a server-wide intrusion that damaged everyone's hosted site.

I agree with @bsmither this isn't uncommon. A malicious bit of code can delete every index.php on the server.

It would be an extremely poor hosting configuration that allowed this !  An intrusion via an issue in an application could potentially delete or adjust files within that one account but it *should* never be possible to affect files in other accounts.  Any hosting company that configures their servers to allow this access deserves all the hassle they will get.
