Some new hacks are running rampant on the web, and they are making my life very difficult along with all the other web site owners that have been affected (or infected). I just don’t understand the allure of hacking servers and sites.
Hack #2: Htaccess hack
In this hack, the hackers are creating a .htaccess file that is causing your site to redirect to a fake Anti-virus site (AV2009). This .htaccess file will be 414 bytes in size. This all originated when some of google’s servers were hacked with this same htaccess hack. Then when people clicked on google search links, they were redirected to a fake anti-virus download link.
You will need to remove this file then go to this site for the steps to remove this virus from your pc: http://www.xp-vista.com/spyware-removal/antivirus2009-antivirus-2009-removal-instructions . After you have followed those steps, change your ftp password to ensure that those hackers no longer have access to your ftp password. Again, if you have any questions about this, leave a comment.
