My entire domain been shut down to apparent phishing?

Today I received an email from my web host saying my domain has been suspended due to complaints of phishing. This isn't just one website, I have dozens of subdomains. Here's a copy of the email:

Hello Liam,

We have received an abuse report against your account. And here is the list of URLs that were reported:

Hello,

Our customers are the target of a phishing campaign, through 1 website hosted by your services :

http://whowantsfun.com/support.php
with the following IP address
Xxx.1.xxx.Xx
This website is largely inactive now with very few members and CAPTCHA's in place to prevent spam. Does anyone know what could have caused this? I've dropped my hosts an email and still waiting so just thought I'd drop be here and see what others think.

Something is. I clicked the link and was warned of a phishing site.

Were you using any hacked scripts?

Not that I'm aware of. There shouldn't be, that whole website is from the OSdate WebScript which has proven pretty popular in the past with no other warnings from users. I have been getting daily Cron Daemon errors from an SEO tool I have installed. Could that be the problem?

In the absence of any knowledge or proof always undo the last thing you did.

Well that's just it, it hasn't been touched in months. I only use it for subdomain space now

Can you ask the host to run malware scan?

Try checking it out on sitecheck securi , it wont let me post URLs here but google it and try running a scan of your site there to see if you can find anything helpful.

Look at the latest files created in your hosting account and try to see if it could've hacked.

The best thing you can do is just start over from scratch. Keep only the content. Remove all of the scripts and you'll see the phishing warnings will go away.

I am certain it is something in the coding.

I believe it is too.

I got the phishing warning as well when I clicked the link.
