In the mean time, please browse at your own discretion and safety and make sure your anti-virus and malware softwares are up to date while we attempt to get this resolved and restore our standing with the Google search systems.

Don, can you tell us whether email addresses and other personal information have been taken?

My browser won't let me get onto Benson's site at the moment, because it lists several trojan horses and a spam bot as being resident there. I am thinking that if hackers could do this much, then other information might be vulnerable as well.

As far as I am aware of, no personal data was compromised, I will however ask our website hosting company the question and get back to you. The website is back running as per normal, so thank you everyone for your patience.

Regards,
Don

Hi Don,

No not at all. There was some code injected into a file which doesn’t get used. If anyone happened to visit bensonarchey.com.au/license.php than they would have been re-directed to another website. So I don’t think anyone would have been in any way affected by this.

Cheers,
