EasyEngine was hacked


my server hacked second time in last 4 month. Someone edited nginx.conf file & added sub_filter. Sub filter adds popads code to my site.

1st time I updated EE to last version. But now I can’t update anything, because it is in last version. I found this sub_filter & deleted it.

Question about that “How?” How hacked edited nginx.conf?

Your server was hacked, not EE.

I don’t know what happened, but I wonder if someone discovered your root password, or hacked your workstation and from there accessed the server. Once in the server, one can edit whatever they want.
