Question: My site has been hacked how can I become much more secure? Answer: Start using Apache instead of IIS :4

Well, it’s hardly Lite-On’s fault! Couldn’t the hackers pick on someone else? LiteOn are the best!

I noticed it to, wasnt sure if it was just me though. You can still browse lite-on’s site, you just have to start off at a different page instead of their main page(www.liteonit.com) Search google.

It´s fake, the liteon site is: http://www.liteonit.com.tw

Yes that is the liteon site, but www.liteonit.com is also a valid address since its the one on the sticker on the front of my drive! However, I did have to press CTRL+F5 to get a new copy to see it, since the Liteon site had been cached by my ISP.

Yea, on the front of the drives it says www.liteonit.com.


#10

As you see, following that URL will also give you a hacked page. Beware that users that surfed in hours after we posted this news might find the original page back…

I just checked its still defaced. I did originally report a new firmware was available too the owners of the Lite-on 32x write, but the fact the site had been hacked has placed more importance on the matter. Greets from The Diplomat :8
