My company has a secondary website that is hosted on a commercial web host completely separate to our SBS2008 network.  This is for the use of contractors etc.

On Friday we had a hacking attack on it and they managed to load files on to the web server so that their pages loaded instead of ours.  We have resolved the issue with the host and the site is working and accessible outside of our network but not accessible internally.  When we access internally we just get the progress bar for ages then a timeout.

All I can think is that either SBS or the cisco box has automatically black listed the site but I am not aware that this is the case.

I have tried connecting to the IP directly but that does not work?
