Hi Munawar,
The first time we were hacked was when we were on Brandon's site as a 
subdomain. We only had one FTP account for all members and couldn't change 
any access permissions.
We then moved to Bluehost where our files were relatively safe for a while, 
until financial difficulties sent me over to Shane's hosting business. Not 
only were we hacked, but also various scripts run on my website didn't work 
like they did elsewhere.
When finance allowed we moved back to bluehost. Once again our files were 
safe, until February when Acefire was released, and with it, the 
registration system. The first hack I constantly heard back from was my 
registration index page, which I put up there for people who were trying to 
view the registration directory.
After that I had a complaint from someone who was also hacked on my site. No 
real harm was done, all that happened was that two empty folders had been 
put up on his site.
The final straw was last week when I saw that my homepage had been totally 
deleted, giving visitors access to not only all directories, but also the 
server files, and found chunks of my site either corrupted or completely 
removed.
Regards,
Damien
