In my arrogant opinion, only people
with programming ability can find and
People who have specialized in security generally live more on the IT side then the dev site, but obviously any security professional will have some programming ability. If you take a look at the subjects a person who is CISSP certified have to understand you will the majority of the topics tend to live on the IT end of the spectrum instead of the developer end.
These types of questions: "Please help
me my site was hacked!" are not
suitable for Server Fault.
I think if you take a second to look at those questions the vast majority are very poorly asked and lack detail. Given the lack of details almost all of them can be answered by the information on these two questions.
This is evidence that the moving posts
is only hurting people.
Personally I think the evidence is that almost anyone asking this type of question hasn't properly been making backups and doesn't know how to ask a question with enough details that a useful answer can be provided. In many of the questions the poster would not have gotten a better answer on SO, or anywhere else until the improve their question.
The other reason to migrate it to SF is that the user might take a second to read some of the other questions about how to setup backups and setup the OS security to minimize the amount of damage that is possible when running buggy software.
Here is a complete and total failure
of a thread on serverfault, The only
reseblance of a solution is mine. One
person who is trying to be helpful has
+13, and its not even close to a solution, it's just an explanation.
What exactly do you think the answer should be to this question? The poster has provided one symptom of the problem and no other details about their system, software, enviroment or anything else. The poster appears to have never came back to the site to update the question with additional details, and a large number of the 'answers' where requesting additional details. I am sorry, but nobody either on SF or SO can read the posters mind.
