Have you been Hacked By Team System Dz? I was sitting down to coffee and starting my morning work when I saw this little beauty on the front of all sites hosted through one Godaddy account. Thanks a lot, Isis! Bunch of jerks. Don’t worry. All is not lost. First of all, let’s get high and mighty about one thing – backups. Always, always backup your backups. If something like this happens, it is good to know that you have a safe copy of all of your images and files. If you backup your own files locally, you will never have to depend on a third party to keep your stuff safe. Not only that, it is the right thing to do. It is the smart thing to do. It is the responsible thing to do.
We had an entire Godaddy account compromised. Some 25 websites had this terrible screen. Here is how we fixed it.

As you can see, the index.php file has been changed. No problem, just click the box and overwrite the files:
That’s it – not so hot now Team System Dz! Your website should be restored just as it was yesterday. If not, call Godaddy support. They are actually pretty dang good.
