The largest hack ever made in a single shot !!!!

Tiger-M@TE had given some of the domain i.e. about 2,00,00 to Zone-h(
He claim "I hack 700000 websites in one shot, this may be a new world Record. After submitting 200,000 domains,zone-h was going down again and again and became almost unresponsive in the i was unable to submit all i've listed all domains in attachment. It was not just a server hack, actually whole data center got hacked."

 At InMotion website they gave an announcement saying:
" Dear Customer,

At around 4am EST, our system administration team identified a website defacement attack affecting a large number of customers. We are still investigating, but it appears that files named index.php have been defaced.

We are evaluating how this has occurred and our security team will have more information shortly.

11:30am EST Update

If you have a backup of your site, you may upload your index.php files to correct this. You may need to do this for each directory. If your site uses an index.html or index.htm, you will need to upload those files, then delete the index.php. For more help, please see How to Restore a File from your own Backup.

It is possible our automated restore system will also be working on correcting the issue while you are. If you see this happen, just upload again.

If you do not have a backup of your site, it is best to wait until our automated system has completed its attempt at restoring. At this point, we feel that should solve a majority of the defaced sites.

1pm EST Update

Systems has been successful in restoring a portion of the affect sites. They are refining their repair method now and should be able to begin deploying the update to additional sites shortly. Please bear with us for another 1 hour when we feel we will have more information to share.

Best Regards,
The InMotion Hosting Team "
