    So, I've been running an XP Pro box with IIS for a couple of years now and using Frontpage to make a very basic personal use website. Well, I went on holidays last week and came back to find that the default.html had been changed to some Hacked From Brazil thing :mad:. I keep that computer up to date, and the only ports that are forwarded to that box from the outside are 20-21 for FTP and 80 for HTTP so I'm assuming it's some form of IIS vulnerability. Here's where I need help. I've been thinking now about switching to apache but I want to keep the ease of use of frontpage. If something like dreamweaver or another WYSIWYG html editor will publish just as easily to an apache server then I have no problem switching to that, I just don't want any more issues. I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to this stuff, so please excuse my ignorance on the matter.

    THanks ;)
