My webserver was hacked sometime yesterday. This means that it will be down until further notice. We've got to do some upgrading and fixing and securing before it comes back up.

I'm wondering "why me?" Was it just a matter of time? Was there something that made it a target? Was there any reason at all? I'm trying not to feel robbed, cheated, violated. It's not working well though.

did they do damage to the box? how'd you realise it'd been hacked? what a pain :(

They managed to install a root kit. My husband was trying to ssh in and it didn't respond. So he went to the main web page and discovered the porn. He logged in locally and noticed that ps had been hacked - it didn't react right. There are some other things, but it's just messy.
