comment zip file downloaded: is it enough to remove it to be secured?
thank you for your answers, I don't know what autorun is, is it turned off by default? Anyway I am a bit more relieved with the answers, thanks

comment zip file downloaded: is it enough to remove it to be secured?
thanks, so as long as I delete the files, (I did not open a program though, just the zip file which contains vb files), is there still a way that something was already sent to another computer (like ip, etc.) that can allow to enter in my computer (even if the files are deleted)? So without the files in my computer and after I switch off the computer: can one still enter in my computer? Just to be sure Thanks

comment Header opening a PDF file, can someone hack a website from there?
@tylerl : thanks, tylerl, what do you mean by that? the pdf is only uploaded by the same person, it is not open to anybody willing to upload a file, so the the pdf at the beginning is safe. Can someone use this downloaded pdf to attack the website? Thanks

comment website hacked and all its content erased despite the protections
@Prowla : thanks, ok i let 540 anyway, but we've been hacked again, although i changed all the passwords... Someone told me it could be a virus with filezilla, do you know any other free FTP that would not have this kind of problem? I'm on mac, maybe Cyberduck? i don't understand how he can get access to the FTP (we have a htaccess/htpasswd and a login/password on the admin page, and in the "search" field, htmlspecialchars with ENT_QUOTES. Then i have just changed all the passwords and logins (in the database and filezilla) ...

@Prowla : thanks Prowla, one thing though : some people upload files to the website, so i let the permissions to 770. Is it a bad thing?

@Ramhound Thanks Ramhound, no it is a different email and password. I managed to change the passwords in the FTP and the database, i am not sure how to use SFTP, if i need the hosting company to do it for me, or if i just can write myself "sftp.myname" instead of "ftp.myname" as the host name?

@Prowla : Thanks Prowla, why is it a bad thing to receive the passwords via email? Can he hack my gmail account? FileZilla has an option "sftp", i will try. I guess i have to ask the hosting company to change the host name starting with "ftp.myname" ? (or maybe it is just a name and is compatible with a sftp connection?) For your PS : a "good thing" ? 3) i believe you, but what is worse? 4) Erasing the whole website is just silly. Same thing as when you get robbed or attacked in the street, you would not say the guy was "brave", you would think that the guy has to pay.

@Andrew Smith : Thanks Andrew, so should i ask the hosting company to change the login and passwords of both FTP and Database, then set each file in a read-only format, and he won't be able to have access to the files in the FTP ? Thanks
