Hi there Neo

hope this message finds you in good spirits.

I have signed on to Hostmonster which is great !

My site was hacked a second time and i cannot find the reason why.

Can you pelase advise where i am not protecting my site as it seems that they find a loophole everytime.

the site I have is www.trinityrecords.com.hk (I cannot access my admin)

I have no back up of the site.

1. Please advise what i should do now, can my content be saved?
2. how should i protect my site once I have a new template uplaoded.

Thank you

I would also advise the following:

For all passwords, your database, ftp, site admin... all passwords for Joomla

Always use a very complex password.

I have to generate one from a site.



Choose at least 20 characters


Lowercase letters
Uppercase letters
Spaces Number of Characters

Number of Passwords to Generate Generate like 20, then save them, and pick some good ones for your site.

If you use one of them for your login, you will need to be able to Copy and Paste, or choose SAVE password when logging into your site.

This will reduce your being hacked BIG TIME.

Since I started doing this, I have never been hacked.

PS< you must be updated to the latest Joomla release also.

HI Megankaz

Thank yo uso much for this. I checked out your sites and they are really great!

I would like to know a few more things if you can possible answer.

1. Is the hacking down because I installed the demo versions?
2. How can I install the updated version through Fantastico ? I am having problems as the error it should is that I cannot upload in the root directory of my site.

It has been hassle after hassle as my site is being hacked and I ahve lost all backup data. I tried to download archive but i cannot get the full back up.

I am giving up and will upload a new demo site and hopefully with your help i can stop these \scums\ disrupting normal lives...
