Great, just what I needed... a hot HTML injection.

I have several websites I host from a reseller account, though I don't actually sell any of my space. Most of the sites are just placeholder pages or projects I started and never finished, so they sit alone and unloved most of the time.
Looking around online, I see things about "Injected" Links, and of course the incident with Al Gore's site. But, how is this happening? It doesn't seem to affect the pages that are updated via Moveable Type and it doesn't seem to affect the sites "under" the main one.
I uploaded an HTML file on Monday afternoon for a friend and by Tuesday morning when he went to save it, it had an iframe injected into it.
Please note that this doesn't appear to be a Movable Type problem, as these are files that seem least likely to have the iframe or random links.
It would seem that the webserver is insecure. Is this something that is my own fault or is this the problem of my webhost? What can I do to stop/prevent/fix this?
