Hacked! Ack!

Some of you know that my current day job involves web design and development. As part of that job, we occasionally have to recover a hacked site. We primarily build in WordPress. As much as I love that platform, I’m the first to admit that it can have security issues…especially if you don’t update your WordPress version. Apparently, I had not been doing that…

I should know better, of course… and I also shouldn’t have been surprised when it happened. But I was.

When I saw the email from Google Webmaster, I thought…non I have not been hacked. No way.

So, I had to check it out for myself. The site wasn’t just hacked, the entire site was no longer showing up.

I spent quite a while going through files and checking the database. Finally, after 2 hours, I found the last bit of malicious code lurking, and got it back up! So, everything’s working and secure again.

Let this be a warning to you. If you don’t update WordPress, you could end up getting hacked. In addition to bringing your website down, it could also negatively affect your search engine rankings.
