How can you tell if your site has been hacked?


  • your homepage is defaced

  • your site redirects to someone else’s site, likely a porn or pharmaceuticals site

  • Google or Bing notifies you that your site has been compromised

  • the Firefox or Chrome web browser indicates that your site may be compromised

  • you notice strange traffic in your web logs such as unexplained big spikes in traffic, especially from other countries


How can hackers get in?


  • by guessing your password [image]

  • by using malware on your local machine to capture your login credentials

    • that’s why a good up-to-date antivirus program is essential

  • by finding a security vulnerability in the WordPress software and plugins

    • that’s why it’s important to update all core WordPress software and plugins

    • note - being open-source means that whenever a security vulnerability is patched and an update is made available they publish all the changes made to a changelog. Here’s an example from a popular plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/changelog/

  • by hacking someone else’s site that resides on the same shared server

    • getting hacked because of someone else's site on the same server is a good reason to avoid cheap hosting providers, they don’t always have the best security practices and you often have bad neighbors
