Server hacked - spam spewed forth

Post by Martin Ryan » Tue Jan 19, 2016 9:25 am

One of the other sites I run on this server has been hacked (second time). I've deleted the website now, but a lot of damage has been done to the IP address's reputation and a lot of email owners - such as Gmail - won't be touching my server with a ten foot pole.

I've just fished something out of the spam pile in my Gmail account. Please check your spam file for any emails and mark as safe.

Once I've given the server 24 hours or so to confirm the problem has gone I'll try to go about salvaging the IP address's reputation.
Please do not send technical questions via private message or email. Post them in the forum where you'll probably get a faster reply, and everyone can benefit from the answers.
