just a thought, but a similar conversation came up on the WordPress  
list.  So.... is this shared hosting?  If so, any app on the server --  
on any domain on the server -- can open a vulnerability to being hacked.

If the tech support is really that half-assed, their security might be  
as well.  The problem could have nothing to do with what YOU have on  
your domain.
