Frequently Asked Security Questions

Our expertise and knowledge of WordPress and WooCommerce security, at your disposal.

How can I tell if my WordPress website has been compromised?

The following are indications your website has been compromised: 

Unable to login to the Wordpress dashboard
Website does not load
Changes in website appearance
Unknown files and scripts
Various unknown user accounts
Website loading slow
Random code fragments on pages
Google warning that your website may have been hacked

Why was my WordPress website compromised?

WordPress websites are on 24/7 and are internet facing, making them easy targets to be exploited. The most common reasons why WordPress websites can be compromised are:

Not having any protection in place
Insecure hosting
Weak account passwords
Outdated WordPress core, plugins and themes
WordPress core, plugins and themes downloaded from unofficial sources
Outdated web application software
Infected local device

How much does it cost to clean my compromised WordPress website?

This depends largely on the nature of the issue and other factors like the size of the site.

What frustrates many WordPress website owners is that fixing the initial problem doesn’t always stop the issues. Even after getting their websites back up and running properly, many WordPress users that have been hacked find that the problem pops right back up again. This is because hackers often install automated scripts, meaning that they just keep running automatically and will continue to do so until they are actually located and removed.

By identifying and removing or neutralising automated scripts that continue to cause havoc to a compromised website, our team is able to resolve the source issue and help prevent attacks of a similar nature in future.
