Yesterday some websites on my partners server got hacked.
Looks like all within a few minutes. What they did:
- Added a SuperUser account
- Logged in with the SuperUser account
- Uploaded two pictures (bg.gif and logo.png) in the root directory
- Uploaded a file "Profile.aspx") in the /portal/0/Images folder

These are the versions of the websites:
DNN 7.05, DNN 7.1, DNN 7.2.1, DNN 7.3.2 und DNN 7.4

Any idea how they got into and how this can be fixed?

Thanks for any help...
