well, that would be me.  its a website I setup for my kid's former 
boyscout troop, they are still using it, and updating it (its CMS 
based).  they've been making noises about switching to something else, 
that will solve this problem.

unless I'm mistaken, the vast majority of PHP exploits are if you allow 
someone untrustworthy to publish sites, and not 'external' exploits (I'm 
not counting exploits created by bad php code, such as SQL injection)?   
noone has access to this host except the server owner and me.
