    FYI-(This actually should be titled Website HOST vulnerability..if someone can change it, hint..:))

    http://www.searchengineworkshops.com/articles/security.html


    Have any of you had experiences with a website host that wasn't doing their job?
    Is there a central place to look at the stats of security of different Internet Hosts?

    What I have found is just sponsored links - by the hosts. :rolleyes:
    Do you just have to or should you 'take all your site's security into your own hands'?
    (Especially for your site's windoze guests.)

    As you can tell this is a new subject for me..:)
    Any personal experiences or even second hand stories would be helpful!

    TIA


    Wonder which host he was using.

    In best practice most webhost fallow security guidelines required by their data center.

    Like in the story the data center didn't seem to see any problem.

    Of course it's NOT their website, they get their money whether your one little site is exploitable or not. :)

    I wouldn't know about the story but most webhost with high volume of customers follow the normal step of the CompTIA Security+.

    It's a standard in the industry to safeguard the information of the client.
