It has been a long time after I have decided to update personal blog which would lead to new project updates and plugin integrations. During last 3 months, I have been working on Zoomfitness and BBEN projects. Zoomfitness was created about 3 years ago and hacked according to 123-reg.co.uk team. Original message from the staff;

I am writing to advise you that your site has been hacked to host malicious content that is sending spam through our servers. We take such incidents very seriously as they can not only affect your own account but can also affect other accounts on the same server by resulting in its IP address being added to various spam black lists, as well as impacting performance/stability due to excessive load.
Due to the serious nature of this incident, I am afraid that public access to your site has been suspended until such time we receive an update to this incident to confirm what steps have be taken to resolve this issue.
While we appreciate that you may not have been aware of what has been happening as the account holder you are responsible for the content of all files within your allocated webspace. This includes safe keeping of FTP credentials and and ensuring any publicly accessible application scripts are kept up-to-date and do not contain any known security vulnerabilities that may be exploited and used for abuse activity such as relaying spam and allowing files to be uploaded without your knowledge.
Please check your webspace and ensure any third party scripts being used in the sending of spam are identified and removed and any of the scripts exploited updated or removed.
Once you have accessed your file manager please ensure your webspace is thoroughly inspected, deleting any files you do not recognise or that have been uploaded recently, including files beginning with a full-stop character, considered hidden files which most FTP clients do not display by default.
We would also recommend that you change your FTP password in case that has also been compromised, ensuring it is secure, contains numbers and mixed case letters, and does not have any correlation to the domain or email address. Instructions on how to change your password can be found here: http://www.123-reg.co.uk/support/answers/Web-Hosting/Web-Tools/changing-your-ftp-password-4209/
Simply deleting the malicious content and changing passwords is unlikely to address the root cause, which is typically due to out-of-date scripts allowing unauthorised uploads. Hence please ensure any scripts such as WordPress or Joomla are also updated.
The below external links provide additional guidance on securing websites with script vulnerabilities. Please ensure the recommendations provided are followed to avoid recurrence:
Joomla:

WordPress:

To have your website reinstated please update this incident when you have secured your site, per the recommendations above, including updating all web apps.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but hope all customers can appreciate the impact that this can have on all customers.

If we can be of any further help with regard to this or any other matter, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Kind regards,
Jennifer
123 Reg

After local scans it was found that plugins contained Trojans. The problem was resolved by deleting the files which lead to new fresh theme install. I should, also, add that the 123-reg support was very helpful. They have had helped to solve the problem much quicker.

In regards, to another project The Business Building Empowerment Network (BBEN) aim is to support business leaders progress and success to built up economy and more pleasant life for society. It is still in progress of development and the delay to deliver project on time was caused to other life factors which show how difficult sometimes could be to work voluntarily when we have to pay other bills.

However, there is always good advantages of working voluntarily, as we can now access;

– Some potential new website customers
– If we work on this on going after launch, we can now look to share some of the 5% BBEN business revenues
– We can get some higher level marketing and branding solutions to attract more customer to them directly once BBEN is live.
– We learn how to work in a team and share some experiences between each other

As “Volunteer” we are creating solutions here and systems that can get them even more customers / more personal & their own business money income.

BBEN website can benefit them & their businesses as the website go live.
