Well that was a pain of a morning!

3 of my eFiction sites were infected with Malware and I had to remove it all by hand. Luckily Dreamhost had a security bot that spots these things. I have had to change all the passwords and files for

http://germanmusicbigbang.dtwins.co.uk
http://panikfiction.dtwins.co.uk
and
http://avatar.dtwins.co.uk

They are now all sparkly clean again, but what a pain.

None of my other sites were infected, thank heavens - seems FTP should never be used nowadays, and SFTP should be. FTP apparently broadcasts your passwords to the world, or at least those who know how to listen.
