ALL:0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0 would that deny all?
(I know ALL:ALL does)
sorry posted in security also.

The answer though isn't clear because you are asking about two different things. Are you the administrator that deleted the files and that's why the question about /etc/hosts.deny or ?
This sounds very much like looking for a backdoor or a prelude to a hack of the site in question because the answer to their setup is irrelevant if they deleted content.
