My understanding was the hack was using PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) a scripting language that can be embedded in HTML(language my website is written in). The malicious code was executed on the server that hold my web pages - It changed page links from the .HTML extender to a .PHP extender and redirecting to the PHP code, which had been embedded in my web pages; the code had about 30 links to unscrupulous websites. I would imagine who ever had written the hack was being paid probably a cent/penny for every hit.
Luckily I have access to the remote server that stores my web pages and can delete/amend the code in the web pages - I'm chuffed I sorted it out myself
The latest HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is HTML5. I use Dreamweaver MX (2004) to create the web pages, albeit dated now, but I'm au fait with it and it does the job.
The latest edition is 'Dreamweaver CC', which you can no longer buy, but have to rent monthly at £20 from Adobe.
I'm better armed now if it happens again.
PS If hackers can hack the Pentagon, how easy it is then to hack Lithydigi
