I have a webserver with a webapp connected to a db (I was a bit ignorant of the issues placing them all together on the same machine would cause if hacked). They are all on the same machine. I noticed 3 days ago that the webapp was working but only externally. I tried to access it internally and it was scrambled (pcis were not posting, seemed like HTML was not showing up, and the basic design of my website was gone. So, I spent a little time investigating this issue and found that the IP address was still directed properly to Godaddy, pinging my ip worked fine, but when it tried to find the web code, it timed out. Now its timing out internally and externally.
Trying to get some information from the web, I noticed that my stored homepage was redirected to a yahoo redirect virus (both in firefox and chrome). I had let down my guard for two hours and took down my firewall while testing settings. It was in this time that the redirect occured. Now, I ran Malwarebytes and removed the virus from my system but my website is still not responding. Im wondering if the redirect could have done something with my settings or if it could have redirected my homepage somewhere else.
I was getting a 404 error but now its just timing out. Does anyone have any idea what I can do next to try to resolve this issue.
Also, I wonder..does this redirect virus affect IIS by changing the structure or redirecting pages?
Im using IIS
Thank you in advance for any help.. If I have left out anything important, please advise.
