I tried to visit my website this morning only to found that my domain has been suspended by the hosting company (bluehost.com). When I called them, they claimed SpamX plug-in contains "phishing scripts" and I'm in violation of their user terms. Anybody here has a similar experience?

I'd be very interested in their exact wording (and reasoning) ...

Wild guess: Maybe they're mistaking the SLV support for phishing.

bye, Dirk

They said Plugins/SpamX/Language/index.php.php file contains phishing scripts and made me delete it before restoring my status.

There is no plugins/spamx/language/index.php file shipped with Geeklog.

You were hacked. Now you need to find out how. You should probably reinstall geeklog from freshly downloaded archives and make sure you have a clean install. That index.php file may not have been the only compromised file.

What Joe said ...

Besides, what Geeklog version are you on?
