I'd basically agree with your service provider, except that where the
problems show up might not be where the holes are.  In other words,
it could be a script _other_ than PmWiki where the problem is actually
located, and it's just showing up in PmWiki.

Is there a way we can get more details about what is happening?
The version of PmWiki being used, what version of PHP, etc?
