    Just came across this post.

    Huyo Jamaa aliye hack hiyo website has not fully managed to bring it down. From what i can tell its more of him trying to show that he can compromise your account. Can be attributed to weak passwords. IF he really wanted to bring it down - angetumia DOS attack.

    The good news is :

    The website data is still intact. What the hacker has done is he has just changed to front page (home page). All other webpages (Links | Members | Activities | Contact Us | About Kilimanjaro) are still available -including their data.

    What the webmaster needs to do is :
    1. Log into his Control panel and change the root password (as this is the one that is compromised). He can do so by Clicking this link -- . http://www.hostdepartment.com/customer_login.html

    2. Only upload the index.html file to the website . Hoping he has the backup. This is the file thats hacked / changed.

    3. Change all the ftp, ssh , dbase passwords (if he is running any of these services)

    The bad news is:

    Most likely the hacker has changed the root password. PlanB is to then contact support and open a ticket to reset it .. http://www.support.hostdepartment.com/

    If you need any further assistance just PM me.

    Kama kuna mzalendo ambaye yupo nyumbani (TZ) na anauwezo wa kuwapa tip hao Kiato itakuwa vizuri. Ninambatanisha contacts zao kutoka kwenye tovuti.
