This story came out a few days ago about Bluehost, DreamHost, Hostgator, OVH and iPage being vulnerable to account takeovers. They were fixed in about 48 hours, but it was interesting to see how some lax coding could have allowed these attacks to take place.

Mike, is it safe for me to assume my Cpanel login on S3 won't work the server restore is complete? Just want to make sure it's not a bad password. Guess it's just luck of the draw being a client for 8 years but being on a newer server Oh well, just means it's less busy I suppose. Thanks!
Did I miss something or was the last ETA/progress posting from MDD early this AM? By now there should be additional information...is it being posted somewhere that I'm not tuned in to?

Thanks for your commitment Michael.
Are we waiting for a full restore before we can access WHM?
Moreover, is there a way we can force redirect the default webpage back to / , and force clear the browser-cached redirection?
Thanks again for your efforts.
I have no way to test this since my site on S3 is still down, but you should be able to put this in the .htaccess file in /www
<FilesMatch "\.(css|flv|gif|htm|html|ico|jpe|jpeg|jpg|js|png|pdf|swf|txt)$"> <IfModule mod_expires.c> ExpiresActive Off </IfModule> <IfModule mod_headers.c> FileETag None Header unset ETag Header unset Pragma Header unset Cache-Control Header unset Last-Modified Header set Pragma "no-cache" Header set Cache-Control "max-age=0, no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" Header set Expires "Mon, 10 Apr 1972 00:00:00 GMT" </IfModule> </FilesMatch>
On a side-note, from any server that hasn't been restored yet, are any of you able to login to Cpanel or do we have to wait? Thanks
I will see if we can't provide some sort of periodic update but the ETA's are for full restoration of each server. If it's feasible to provide additional information we will do so.
Thank you for this information Mike. I was just about to post asking if the ETA was for full restoration of the server or if it was in between slow and fast backup stages. Been with you guys since Oct 2010 and everything (up til now) has been stellar.
