See some of these stories about how hackers take out servers from banks and even stole 1.5 million Facebook accounts.Hmmm.
I don't buy it.
DDOS attacks don't take out servers. They certainly dont take out servers and backup servers.
Either they were rooted and someone got nasty - or - they weren't backing things up properly.
If they can't get your data, you'd be smart to change Hosts.
I asked them about this, and this is the reply -Peggy, what I find interesting is that your host is a reseller for WiredTree.
In regards to these servers, they are not resold or a reseller from WiredTree. We simply purchase and co-locate our servers in their data center because we have been with them for such a long period of time. The servers are ours, and are not resold by another party to us. We happen to have a cluster of hardware servers (roughly five) all connected within the same series of racks to allow us easier control over each machine. When one of the servers was taken down on Thursday by this attack, it happened to have a reverse effect on each one. Unfortunately, this is an issue that only affected our specific set. All-in-all, it is a mess that we intend on resolving by whatever means possible.
Thanks I've been going through google cache and getting as much as I can. My site wasn't all that big, so I can do it manually.I see lots of stuff on google cache.
I wonder if there are tools to "extract everything on google cache from my site".
Here are some ideas:
How about archive.org? Maybe you can recover something from there too?
I think that's a good idea.
