first question: how did the attackers get access to your site?
Which DNN version are you running, are there 3rd party modules installed with known vulnarabilites?
Did you make sure to use strong passwords for admins and superusers, did you check members of superusers and admin role?

Cheers from Germany,

Hi guys!
Tks for the help.
First thing, I blocked new subscriptions and delete all the fake ones.
Was not enough, yesterday happens another atack.
Than, I uninstalled all the modules that was not in use. Now there is only native DNN modules, plus EasyDNNNews, SmokeRanch for banners and a layout from speed Application.

The application is hosted on Amazon EC2. Only my IP has access on the machine in ports differents of 80. Its installed ClamAV antivirus, who runs every night.
