“Has your site been hacked?” seems to be a bit of a strange question surely you would know?  This is not always the case.  Most people think that hacking is about defacing a website, uploading new content, something deliberate and obvious – normally this is not the case.

A hacked website is a compromised website that could be doing anything from sending out 1,000’s of emails, being part of a DDOS attack on another site, harboring malicious files to infect your visitors computers or redirecting traffic to another site.

With this type of attack the hacker wants the fact that the site has been compromised to stay as invisible as they can for as long as possible.  Unfortunately that means that the first you know of it will be warning page from Google when you try to go to the site or your customer (hopefully) letting you know.  Eventually your will be black listed.  Now you need to clean your site and get it removed from the black list.

Other ways to tell that your site may have been hacked:

  • Increased traffic to your site

  • Search results contain different information from usual
  • New files and or folders added to your website
