Oops - got owned

Security Just a note of warning - someone hacked an old site of mine that was inactive - but in a sub directory and sub domain. I had forgotten about the site - and they uploaded an image that wasn't an image - and it gave them shell access which gave them much more than control of the sub domain. Just a warning to all -this is an easy exploit - the code was minimal and any old or test sites you have laying about need to have the ability to upload pics curtailed ASAP.

Stupid stupid me. I was "owned" for about 12 hours and I'm still assessing the damage.
