I have access to the control panel of a website that I manage. But I rarely login to the CP ever. Today as the website was not responding, I contacted the tech support and was informed that the public.html folder for my website has been deleted by someone at a certain IP. This IP turned out to be mine. But neither me nor anyone else here has accessed the CP via my PC at all any time soon. I am 100% sure of this.


How can something like this happen? Is my PC infected? I have Norton Security and run Adware scans every month or so. Nothing has come up thus far to suggest anything serious.


Please help.
