Abantecart / Website hacked
« on: June 02, 2014, 10:25:59 AM »
I installed latest version of abantecart via Softaculous and was looking at all the features. then suddenly it stopped working. I saw the main page and it was defaced by IRAQ CYBER ARMY
I deleted all the files changed all the passwords my hosting and database and AbanteCart admin and even the directory for the admin. and again within 2 hours my website was defaced again.

Can you please tell me what to do so my  website does not get defaced?

thanks in advance

WOW.
What makes you think it is AbanteCart that was the tool used for hacking?
Did anyone else had access to your site or hosting account?
How old is your domain name and hosting account?
Do you have anything else installed on this domain/hosting account?

NOTE: If you just installed and got hacked, very likely that your computer is infected with some virus that sends notifications with access to your server to hackers.
What OS is this?
