Hacked...

A website owner's biggest nightmare is getting hacked... well last night was no less than a nightmare, it was around 2AM when i thought about checking out one of my blog that i don't use much and i was busy surfing on other tabs there was this loud unknown language song that got started it took me a min to figure out which tab it is,i switched to that tab and there was this word "hacked" written on it, i immediately closed that tab thinking that some damm website i opened got hacked but then i thought lets check it out and when i checked the recently closed tabs i was surprised to see that it was my movies blog only.It took me a min to digest this fact but then it was my movies blog which i was planning to shut down so i was a bit ok but it didn't took me much time to find out that it was not just one blog but my entire domain that got hacked...

OMG!!! even my itsmylife blog whose link was everywhere,my facebook status,gtalk status,twitter,orkut everywhere because of my Goodbye JUIT article... and then for a moment i thought oh my God everything is gone!!! All those articles,those beautiful comments,my technical blog which has more than 500 entries...
Luckily i still had FTP access to my main site and i changed the index page back to original by taking the code from GOOGLE Cache. 

Then i checked out the hackers page again it was in Turkish,i found that from the emotional video that was there on that pagea and that sound was making me even more crazy... i tried to translate that page but for the first time Google was of no help as it doesn't have turkish to english translation yet!

Finally i got the link to hacker's website and OMG it was on on turkish and its look was enough to drive me crazy i somehow managed to find a contact link and requested him to leave my site...

Then i called up My host in USA but damm.. it went on voicemail and i wasted Rs. 6.40/-  then i sent him a mail and thank god after around 10 mins he came online and i told him everything... he said he's working on it and i don't need to worry about it as he has backup of everything. after reading these lines i came back to senses but still stayed awake till 4 but then i went off to sleep but still quite tensed...

As soon as i woke up i got a sms from Google sms channel which sends me updates of my blog... i was happy to see that msg coz i thought everything is back to normal but it wasn't it was still "Ownz! by Cyber Operations Team[Turkish Hackers] - CyberGrup.Org" but one thing was good Lakshman kumar was still online and that means he was still working on it, he told me he's working on it and repeted those golden words that "he has backup of everything"... Finally i got completely relaxed around 2:30PM when i saw all my blogs up and running smoothly...  especially my Goodbye JUIT post and all the comments....

Here's that deadly page that i had to see all night yesterday...
