Rescue Help for Hacked Sites - Must Watch Video
Every day, cybercriminals compromise thousands of websites. Hacks are often invisible to users, yet remain harmful to anyone viewing the page — including the site owner. For example, unbeknownst to the site owner, the hacker may have infected their site with harmful code which in turn can record keystrokes on visitors’ computers, stealing login credentials for online banking or financial transactions.
Let me explain in simple terms.
In this analogy, just imagine you have a business with your own stock and goods stored (in this case it is your website images/files/information) in a premises (in your case it is your host account where your website files are stored) and you have no website monitoring installed or subscribed to.
Over a period of time due to the outdated or old windows and locks (in your case it is your outdated website code/plugins normally makes your website work and keep up with the new technologies) is compromised and left your back door open for thieves (in your case hackers). Now they can easly come in and take one of the spare rooms you are not using and start conducting their own illegal business through your back door (in your case it is your outdated website content) without even you knowing it is happening.
Your website looks fine at first but Google and other anti-hacking organisations have already black listed your site through their regular internet crawling and now start to sends alerts to your browser to display warning messages to your visitors that your site is no longer is safe. Worst part is you have no idea what personal or customer records hackers may have stolen from your website or from your database.
" Google said in a recent post. “As hackers get more aggressive and more sites become outdated, hackers will continue to capitalize by infecting more sites.”
Sites are hacked in various way, but the most common is through acquiring passwords or machine-based guessing attacks. Other common tactics include exploiting vulnerabilities such as missed security updates. New updates in software come out routinely to plug holes in security, but if you don’t keep up to date on them, it becomes a road map for hackers to burrow in. Outdated plugins and themes that are no longer maintained by developers can be just as bad."
