5 days after receiving my " Project Honey Pot MX Donation(s) Completed" email, my website was hacked, by adding or replacing the .htaccess file in 8 different directories, including the subdomain directory that was created for the MX donation.
In 5 years of operating my site I have never knowing been hacked until now. Is it a coincidence that the hack almost immediately followed the MX donation? Might spam harvesters be trying to bite back?
My symptoms match those at http://mysitemyway.com/support/topic/hacked-1 and my rogue .htaccess code is almost identical to what's listed on that webpage.
Any advice / opinions are welcome.
