SG Managed Provides Hosting For Important Spam Hack Component

SG Managed is providing hosting for c4412d2ffc4bf832.info, which is an important component of a spam hack that has affected a large number of Zen Cart based websites. The website is one of eight that the hacked websites attempt to retrieve a file containing a set of spam links to display when search engines request pages from the website. This website is the only one currently active and if the hosting was shut off the hacked websites would no longer contain spam links unless new hosting could be found. We contacted SG Managed about the issue several weeks ago, we have received no response and the website is still being hosted by them. When we contacted another host who had been providing service for another website used by the hack they shut down the service within a hour.

We are currently in the process of contacting the websites that have been affected.
