After a successful hack attempt by someone in Amsterdam who hacked in, created an admin account, and uploaded some files that I assume were to be a virus, fortunately, I caught it before anyone else did, and removed the files, so now, I have found it necessary to remove the login.aspx page and create an alternative way to log in to my 7.0.6 site. How can I do this? My idea is to create a page with a screwed up URL, set it to not be in the menu, not to index, and save the page and use that as my login, but before I do that, is there a way to login without having an actual page to login? I went to the Admin settings, and tried to set another page as the login page, but the login.aspx page just redirects to the new page with is contradictory to what I am trying to accomplish.

 Any ideas?

Thanks, Jeff
