Free Article Directory Script

1,For all webmasters who are looking for Free scripts here is one big lesson!!!


Free Article directory script

If you are looking for a Free article directory script then you are at a correct place-Before you experiment on your dreams——-

Hello,Just few days back i was in France and my friend told me to start a new article directory,so i have started looking for a script just for fun,Because internet is a fun for me and i keep on adding new websites,While surfing i landed on a script for articles directory authors somewhere  in Hongkong,I will not take the name of that website here

I was not aware of what was following me behind that script, After registering on their website,i got an email to download the script, I was very happy to get finally a script Free, then i started building it up as per installation instructions given in email!! I was Dreaming of an excellent article directory,I uploaded all files to my new domain,Infact i have 15 websites with a WHM panel so buying a domain and uploading the new script was very easy!!

After Installation as in email-i saw a very nice article directory coming up,with tons of features and easy to use, I was thrilled to see my own first ever article directory,It was really easy to use article directory—Both front end and back end was easy to use and add Clickbanks codes- , then i have started admin section  with a very nice interface and cool themes then i started adding my articles,unique ones ,other Pages,etc,Ofcourse i was very happy and thinking of good revenues from it!

(This was my great luck that i changed my hosting few days back and i was on my new hosting and luckily all my old files  were intact in my old hosting not deleted so i uploaded this free script at New hosting)..This went to me like a deadliest dream in my life- please carry on reading, I was still adding new articles and building up pages
like privacy policy and rules etc…I was really into it

… SUDDENLY-EVERYTHINGS GONE..Black out All my cpanel,all my 15 websites and even hosting server went off saying 500 internal error,I was surprised and little shocked, I then immideatly contacted my new hosting but ….helas that was also down with 500 internal error with no phone number and no other way to contact new hosting,I was helpless like i saw a ship being on a isolated island and was unable to give thme a sign!!!!, Then after about an hour as i have refreshed my new article directory, I was badly shocked to see a new webpage coming up a Black page with a countrys flag, i dont take the countrys name, and a banner displaying and in rotation—

“””You stupid admin all your websites have been hacked by me ,You….lots of abuses and insults””””

I understood that something has gone wrong,i quickly checked all my websites but all 15 websites of mine were displaying that page(The hackers page),Imagine you have a nice website running well with google..suddenly it vanishes with a hackers page coming up!!

Trust me i have few very nice websites with a flow of visitors ,all unique visitors from google,bing and yahoo ,I earn my living with that-,immideatly one idea struck my Mind (In such cases ideas dont come up easily) and I acted fastly, I contacted my old hosting company and without telling them the hacking of my websites,requested them to check all my websites and i was told that all files are intact and i still have 2 more months of hosting left
I quickly changed all my DNS to previous state and i got all my websites back in 4 hours,Though i lost some updates,but that night was a nightmere for me Another lucky thing which happened to me and please take this as advice for all those who are reading this article–Never host your website on a server where you have your domains,I was having all my domains with a different registrars website.

Now what exactly has happened- the free directory script was being used to hack my whm panel and even the server through injection attack to my mysql database,this allows them to use the my websites to upload pirated software, phishing websites and other dangerous things like viruses,trojans etc – saying clearly to steal banks passwords and other valueable information,

So this script (Free scripts are not always good) is a very bad news for all newbies webmasters who are dreaming like me and as well a bad script.This is a complete hijacking of full server,not using the word hacker or hacking,they hijack everything,Poor new hosting company,they were hacked too,but one day later i saw them back ,it means they recovered too!Why not they might be having their software engineers at work,But for me i knew nothing  In a sense it a big t-rex which will eat your dreams in few seconds..its a real hackers den

Trust me,the front end was so excellent and appealing and i was very very happy and the admin section was full of features and easy to use even for a kid to add advertisments in side bars bottom and frontend..A big source of revenues !A complete dream script which
he can sell it easily for 100 dollars on net….Free scripts,never download them!!!unless you dont know the author personaly or it should be from a known webmaster or known reputed website

I still imagine the moment that it took just flash of a second to break my whm panel security and servers security and a black hacked page was inserted Repeating again-This was my luck that i escaped,i can say by grace of god,otherwise all my websites even PR3 they might have been into hackers trap and sooner or later Browsers might have shown not safe for surfing!!!

i am writing this to save others who are reading this!and those webmasters who are new to php scripts and those who have a big dream !! Best of luck to all,You can ask me personaly the name of that website on my email,Its a very very famous one!!Very famous on net!!

Adding few more lines because i forgot that even after changing DNS and changing Hosting company finally after 5 days of hack,I was always watching in my browser same hacked websites of mine,Then i consulted a webmaster who adviced me to flush DNS from my
computers windows with this command- Run CMD AND then type- ipconfig /flushdns
Then after i was able to see all well…Alls well that ends well!

Toute est bien qui fini bien!!

What a Scammmm,I am adding few more lines excuse me,

I have submitted this article to a big big article directory  and whoooops my article was right on  first page of Google worldwide in just 3 days…….Then just 5 days after they put me in nofollow index…and three days after my article vanished…. though i have not pointed anyone,i have not taken name of any website and i have not blamed anyone!!!so leagally nothing goes against…..(According to my lawyer i can not take the names of anyone in my article)and when i am innocent too!!!

Then i have added this article to another directory and in two days it was removed from there too!!!!It means someone dont want this message to reach innocent webmaster and newbies
What a mafia type connection!!!!…Do you believe this? but this was happening with me….Then leaving all hopes i have taken a friends help and posted this on his website at ……..Sorry folks the domain expired……, This article remained there for few months but then again—Few months later,I got a message that google has blocked that page because some one has hacked and using it as a phishing source..Anyways my friend then removed and deleted that page,because the site was compromised!!…

Here is the message-

Dear site owner or webmaster of …..(DOMAIN EXPIRED NOW)…..,We recently discovered that some pages on your site look like a possible phishing attack, in which users are encouraged to give up sensitive information such as login credentials or banking information. We have removed the suspicious URLs from search results and have begun showing a warning page to users who visit these URLs in certain browsers that receive anti-phishing data from Google.Below are one or more example URLs on your site which may be part of a phishing attack: Here is a link to a sample warning page: We strongly encourage you to investigate this immediately to protect users who are being directed to a suspected phishing attack being hosted on your web site. Although some sites intentionally host such attacks, in many cases the webmaster is unaware because:

1) the site was compromised

2) the site doesn’t monitor for malicious user-contributed content

If your site was compromised, it’s important to not only remove the content involved in the phishing attack, but to also identify and fix the vulnerability that enabled such content to be placed on your site. We suggest contacting your hosting provider if you are unsure of how to proceed. Once you’ve secured your site, and removed the content involved in the suspected phishing attack, or if you believe we have made an error and this is not actually a phishing attack, you can request that the warning be removed by visiting this page, and reporting an “incorrect forgery alert.” We will review this request and take the appropriate actions.Sincerely,

Google Search Quality Team

After this message,I was confused what to do about this one,then i have checked my site with few online tools,and i reached the page which was of great problem for hacker-Then the page has been deleted and Now i have decided if some organisation helps me or not I keep on publishing this article at differet places keeping its uniqueness!! i will put in all my efforts to reach millions!!!

I am sure he will try his techniques on word press too sooner or later or may be he will try to contact wordpress by some means like he did at other article directories!!!

If you are reading this and you really think that this is something wrong happened,Then please place a link of this blog on your website or blog
