I am using magento ver. 1.7.02. Recently I hired a freelance programmer to do some work on my website. After that, I got a pop-up message:
“Your web server is configured incorrectly. As a result, configuration files with sensitive information are accessible from the outside. Please contact your hosting provider.”
I called my hosting provider for help, they could not tell what to do to fix the security problem. Can any body tell me what I can do to fix this problem, what files to look at?
Also, how I can detect any security breach purposely caused by an outside freelance programmer?
