Good question... I dunno what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at Verisign as they probably could help you..
I just have SSL cert and I banned the IP in htaccess , I dont see anything wrong now that it's the next day.. What could it do?..
It's got nothing to do with SSL or you simply banning their IP (most of these hackers use dynamic IPs, so you can ban and ban and ban and they'll just keep coming back).
The shell commands they are trying to run are testing server vulnerabilities by trying to execute external commands to your server ... to me it looks like their grabbing all your server info and storing it the results to a file ... so if they succeeded to grab anything it means your server is vulnerable ... if thats the case this is only the beggining of your worries ... or they might not even bother and move onto somewhere else ... usually these are bots that are randomly scanning sites with these tests and then the actual hacker decides on which one to target (depending on the results).

Well is oscommerce pretty easy to hack shouldnt their be security updates for this software then maybe? Or is this something you would recommend to help myself be better protected..
There are .... and have been for quite some time .... search the forum .. Spook's.
How to secure your site.
Topic should be the most important topic to read before launching your osCommerce store.
The rest depends on how secure your server is ... read up on it and speak to your host about it..
I was looking at my Verisign whois screen and I saw an odd one.
Normally it looks more like.
So dont you think that as a very odd one? I looked at techbidders and it's some oscommerce site?..
Its a hack attempt ... trying to run a shell script on your server ... what can happen from here depends on how many precautions you took on securing your site..
