A freind of mine has found his home page altered. www.archipelagodive.com/
Has any one any knowledge of security like how they got in and how this can be guarded against.
i have tried to change it for him but I am being denied access. Of course I sent him back to his hoster but ?????

Definately a host issue.
(my guess: host is running a windows server that has not been updated)
you get what you pay for.

I finally (briefly got into his account but could find nothing wrong there. Any ideas how the index page which seems correct and reads the right address can display something else.
I looked up whois and it showed cached his correct page but description is the abuse message.
We have now been locked out o the control panel again They really are a pain in the neck

edbr; serisouly, if the site has been hacked you need to get into some kind of communication with the host asap. It sounds like the account is still compromised and you need to get in touch with your host asap.
