Whats The Most Reliable E-commerce Platform Online ? by osile2012: 2:56am On Oct 24, 2015
[size=18pt]I once used opencart for a client and before i knew it, people where already uploading files to my server, exploiting scripts and sending spam mails with my domain address. I pulled it down.

Can someone recommend a reliable alternative.

Thanks

It's not the fault of the CMS script you used but your own fault for failing to do the necessary things.
On many occasions, I have seen and worked on websites having little to no security.
Whoever designed them (or should I say put them together) did a very poor job thereby leaving lots of loopholes.
Its becoming a regular thing nowadays to see websites with brows able directories among others.

Moreover if you believed Open cart was easily compromised, how far about WordPress that's so popular and easily a target.
I would advice you check the way you design your websites and also watch what module or plugin you install.

PS: Who knows if you had used a nulled script (as some people are too greedy to buy one) that was compromised. That can easily be another cause.

PSS: Doing nothing and leaving the defaults where they’re at is the worst thing you can do, and it gives the CMS (e.g WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart, etc) a bad name from a security standpoint.

[size=18pt]The problem was from opencart. Opencart is actually a site of its own and you have little or nothing to design. The attack was from opencart and my hosting provider even showed the script that was manipulated and used to upload the files from opencart. [/size]
