    Can hackers gain access using free scripts?

    One of my clients' websites keeps going down. His hosting company is telling him that hackers are using the free scripts on his site to gain access to his site. Have you heard of this happening? And what should I do if this is the case?

    Thanks for any input!

    Re: Can hackers gain access using free scripts?

    The short term answer is obvious: Take the free scripts down from the site! Long term answer: Find equivalent and more secure scripts, modify the existing (insecure) ones, or have a developer build for you what you need.
