Its only as secure as the environment you are installing it on. IE, if your server isn't secure, then it won't matter how secure the software is. There are no known security issues and I personally have not ever had any vivvo sites that I work on hacked.

I agree.

Of course there's also the fact that it's not as widely used as other CMS's out there

Doubt it has anything to do with Vivvo - The likely cause is that your server isn't secure. I've been using Vivvo for years and have never had a problem with security.

I agre.. No security issues for me at all. And I have been using Vivvo for 5 years, and have all my clients on it.

What I do recommend is using Liquidweb as your host, great support and they are familiar with Vivvo. I had a ton of problems with prior hosts.. Stay away from Hostnine.

If files are being infected then:

(1) it is through FTP (index*/default*/home*/main*) so keep a very hard to guess longish (12 characters or more) ftp password.

(2) server itself is compromised. but in this case the damage done is far more than just defacing a site. This your host will have to check.

(3) Your local machine itself is compromised and leaking out FTP login passwords and other details so no matter how many times you change cpanel password and then login through ftp it is never secure.

If you are your own host and on cpanel servers then :

(1) Lock out ftp in /etc/ftpusers for given users
(2) Lock out WHM and SSH to a given set of IP's (or IP Block)
(3) chattr +i all directories except backup, cache and files directories.
(4) Disable password auth for root user.
