Something had caused a permanent server-side script to run, which is against the hosting co's terms and conditions so they closed the site down incase it was a DOS attack.

Can't be any more specific than that I'm afraid as that's all i know

I know, you need to get yourself on Facebook mate - I announce issues on there ;)

Have been looking into this issue for most of the afternoon with the hosting company tralling through the log files, and we finally got to the bottom of the issue. It was a remote includes attack on one of the modules of Joomla (the CMS used for the homepage), and this was the same reason for the downtime last time.

The module has now been uninstalled so hopefully the problem has been rectified and shouldn't happen again. When I get some spare time, I will be moving the homepage away from Joomla
