Hacked OpenX Ad Server Cleanup

If your OpenX (recently renamed Revive Adserver) ad server has been hacked we can clean it up for you, attempt to determine how the ad server got hacked (see an example of how that is done), and help you to secure it against a future hack. Hiring us will ultimately save you time and money over doing it yourself or hiring someone who doesn't know what they really should be doing (which seems to be pretty common based on the number of times we are brought in to clean up after a hack has returned).

Please feel free to contact us to receive a free consultation on how you can best deal with your hacking issue. If you are not sure if your ad server is hacked, we can perform a free check to confirm for you if your ad server is in fact hacked.

The hack can be due to an outdated OpenX installation (versions up to 3.0.1 are known to be vulnerable), an insecure web host, or a weak password.

To clean up the ad server, we will review the ad server's files and database for code inserted during the hack and remove that code. Checking and cleaning the website's files takes a few hours. If the ad server is running on an old version of OpenX, the current is Revive Adserver 3.0.5 (check what version you are currently running), we will upgrade the ad server to the latest version of Revive Adserver following proper upgrade procedures. Also, if any plugins are out of date we will update them. We will also work with you to secure the ad server against a future hack. If your ad server has been hacked due to poor security at your web host we can move your website to a new host as part of the service. If website(s) have been flagged and blocked due to the malware, we will assist you in requesting a malware review from Google and or Bing to have the warning removed. It should take no more than a day to be removed from Google's malware blacklist after a review has been requested.

Price:

$200 USD, payment is due after the ad server has been cleaned up and we accept payment by credit card, debit card, or eCheck through PayPal in a number of currencies.
