First thing's first, talk to your web host. Any decent host will have a complete backup of your site that they can restore. Then maybe see if they can find out when the site was hacked and who did it.

He left his name and email address right there :/

Seems like a small time Greyhat who was probably paid by a security company to hack you....

That's kinda dumb,because anybody can bomb-drop his address...

Tell him that your website was the only source of income for your dieing, black, gay, disabled mother and thanks to him she could not afford her painkillers this week. It may appeal to his concience and force him to mend his ways.

I already e-mailed him, and he hasn't replied yet, so i'm about to email my host. I hope they have a backup, cause lots of people had images in my upload dir.

Ok, thanks. Well, I thought I'd give him a little heads up..
Code:
Thanks.  I don't have any 3rd party software installed.  I'm not sure if this is accurate, but I heard that this could have happened through some security holes in the FrontPage extensions.
Code:

does your image uploader let people upload scripts?

without knowing anything about it, that would be the first thing I'd check.

It's pretty difficult to hack a website unless the website itself has vulnerabilities. I know these things because it happened to me. Now I'm a paranoid freak about my web development.

unless the server itself is vulnerable - like if you are running a very old version of PHP or whatever where you could just type in the right thing into the URL and do all kinds of nasty things.

and you don't even have to know what you're doing. when a new version comes out to fix a security problem, how to take full advantage of that problem quickly becomes public knowledge that can then be exploited by a 12 year old retard who just happened to be in the right chatroom.

especially if you use open-source software, you HAVE to keep it up-to-date, which is a problem when you don't have that kind of access to your web host's server and they don't see it as a big deal. :/

i've been paranoid as hell about security ever since a buddy called me up from an old job and in the course of conversation mentioned an old script i put on our server had been hijacked as a spam-remailer.

I was planning on changing hosts soon, anyway. And, since this is the second time it's happened, I mine as well change now. Any suggestions on a new host?
