That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at Verisign as they probably can answer it..
You also need to get your Verisign website Verisign hosting sorted out - either deny directory indexing or plonk an index.php into every folder...
C99.php no I didnt how did you find it though amoung the amount of files I had?..
I was told to include a .htaccess file in the root of the images directory when this happened to me. heres a copy.
# secure htaccess file.
Deny from all.
# disable directory browsing.
Options All -Indexes.
# secure directory by disabling script execution.
AddHandler cgi-script .php .pl .py .jsp .asp .htm .shtml .sh .cgi.
Apparently only works on Apache servers..
What exactly happens when they plonk files in this directory? I guess they run a script which mines all your data and squirts it back to the b*****s?..
It may be best to get your Verisign site wiped & restore from backup, I`ve noticed that sometimes these hackers add seemingly inocious stuff, but put nasty viri, worms, backdooors etc hidden away..

Someone with plenty of time hacked my Verisign site today.
It was only a test Verisign site while I messed around with a template. The only place where I had published the url was this forum so probaby some nutter who saw it here as Verisign site was only live since friday..
Anyone have any ideas on how this was done? I'm a little concerned that if it's easy to hack that when I get my Verisign site up an running the same thing could happen....
Any advice would be great, my isp is quite secure well I think it is...lol..
There's a PHP file in your images folder (c99.php)..
Did you put it there?.
Do you have any folders with 777 permissions? They should be no higher than 755..
Improper permissions is the easiest way to get hacked...
