Anger over web hosting hitches

A internet company which hosts thousands of websites has been hit by hackers again. Around 3,000 customers of web hosting firm Bargainhost.co.uk found their websites affected for a second time in two months.

According to the firm, the hackers posted anti-war slogans on "most of our customers websites".

Some had their sites defaced and some found that their sites disappeared completely over the May Bank Holiday weekend.

Bargainhost was forced to re-install two Linux servers but all backups were lost and the firm spent the next few days manually recreating all 3,000 customer accounts.

This is the second embarrassing hack attack for the company, which lost around 1,500 customer accounts in a similar attack in April.
