Web-hosting firm eUKHost has been hacked by Pakistani hacking team 
UrduHack, which appeared to have gained access to its billing system.

The company sent out an email to customers and announced on its website 
over the weekend that it had spotted the intrusion within the last 24 

"We can confirm that an administrator level login was compromised and an 
IP address added to an allow list to allow a successful login," eUKHost 
said on Saturday morning.

"We are still investigating how this compromise occurred and we can't 
currently see any evidence of a database dump," the firm added.

eUKHost managing director John Strong told The Register that the hackers 
had not bothered to cover their tracks by deleting logs and the company 
had identified them as Pakistani group UrduHack.
