Some time yesterday, the 6th of September my account at my web host got hacked.
I had just spend the day upgrading from 2.1.0 to the 2.2.2, I also did change the admin.php to a new one as requested for security.

According to my host, mine was among others who were exploited by vulnerabilities on the website.

Has this happened to others? Will there be a fix?

Maybe whole shared hosting got hacked? I would suggest moving to VPS.

My server also got hacked recently, two cs-cart sites, 2.1.4 and 2.1.2. Yet I did not figured how it happened, files added to 777 chmod dirs.

Yes, the whole shared hosting got hacked.

What spec. on the VPS do you recommend for a small site with small volumes?

Where was the hacked store hosted? In what country is this host company located? Please let us know.
Site hacked leave a bad impact on credibility. There is nothing worst that a customer walk to you trusting you know what are you doing and bamb!! the site is hacked.

Happened to me 1 time, and is a business killer.

It is hosted in the UK, Linux server (shared hosting). I've got very little info but apparently there were multiple accounts affected.

That pretty well sums up that you might want to strongly consider looking for a better managed hosting company.

Would recommend also Cloud VPS hosting? Is it really safe?
