I have for some time been a Servage.net customor.

It worked ok, but in the last year there has been an explosion of my website getting hacked.

No matter what I did, everything was updated, and patched, and all access levels was correct.

But eventhough, my websites was hacked, even ftp accounts was created (witch can only happen through the control panel, or via direct access to the server via root).

I complainted to Servage, they always gives the same bot-like anwsers, never anwsering my questings.

I ended up, changing to a new hosting firm, and since then, my website has not been hacked!

 

Therefor I must warn anybody thinking about hosting at servage.net, they are cheep, but insecure and dumb.

 

I did some googling with the term "servage hacked" and it showed my an alarming number of people that has also been hacked, and that the problem that their control panel is insecure.

Therefor you can spend a lifetime patching your own software, and constantly changing your passwords, and another lifetime cleaning up, after the hackers, with no effect, because the problem is not with your software but with the hosting firms software.

 

So to anyone, aviod Servage!
