YAMWD: Yet Another Mass Web Defacement

Thousand of sites were mass defaced on yet another large web hoster (in this case possibly via MyBB or similar vulnerabilities. On a related note sites hosted at had been essentially offline since the 14th. This would be a good time to point out the risk of having your web site at a large hosting firm, particularly if their security or availability of service is less than desirable.

If you have experiences with a web hosting firm, or have additional information on recent mass web defacement let us know!
