Neo Posted November 5, 2015 Share Posted November 5, 2015 A couple of months ago I created a portfolio website with ProcessWire for a client of mine. For both server and CMS I used strong passwords and the usual security measures. My client contacted me now that an exact, dynamic copy of the website was created on another domain. I already filed a complaint with the respective Domain registrar (GoDaddy) and also notified Google via the DMCA procedure. The violating domain uses the same IP like the VPS of my client. The question is now how this could have happened. I know that there are tools like HTTrack on Kali Linux, which would to my knowledge require access to the MySQL database to create an exact copy. As you don't easily hack a secured Linux server, this makes me think that the intrusion must come from inside the hosting company; i.e. a system administrator accessed the VPS. Would appreciate your advice. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
