Has Your Website Been Hacked?
According to Computer World 90% of companies say they have been hacked and nearly 60% reported two or more breaches over the past year!
Research estimates that every day more than 30,000 websites are infected with some type of malware. Malware, short for malicious software, is software designed to disrupt computer operation, gather sensitive information, or gain unauthorized access to computer systems.
Most of the infected or hacked sites belong to small businesses that run the risk of having their web presence shut down by their hosting company or internet service provider. Google (and other search engines) may warn searchers that visiting your web site is dangerous or remove your site from their search results.
How do you know if your website has been hacked?
Some signs to be aware of:
- Google your website – If your website has been compromised, Google will display a warning.
- Strange messages or popups when editing your website.
- Your hosting company has suspended your website even though your payments are up to date.
- The admin area of your website looks strange
