The Web hosting company Hostmonster.com uses servers that have recently been connected with phishing as
it relates to customers of Lloyds Bank of England.

A recent client of Hostmonster.com has informed us that a certain account was deactivated due to the issue.
The interesting news is that Hostmonster.com could not prove that the phishing had originated at his site
when asked, nor could Hostmonster.com prove that the issue was not due to security flaws of the servers
Hostmonster was using.

The honest approach to handling the matter would have been for Hostmonster to deactivate all servers until
the source of the problem was identified and handled completely.

It would seem that "passing the buck" on to its own customers in order to "Save face" may be the tactic
of Hostmonster.com, in order to create apparency that they are cooperating fully.

Hostmonster.com promotes a software program by the name of SiteLock, with whom the company is an affiliate. Such
software is utililized to supposedly minimize such threats. A conflict of interest here is up for grabs and may
be up to the interpretation of customers of Hostmonster.com.

Anyone considering utilizing Hostmonster.com for their Web hosting needs may want to think twice. Also, authorities
are encouraged to keep a close watch on the business antics of Hostmonster.com
