Recently we’ve had a lot of new clients come to us with servers that have been hacked. It can be quite a lot of work to tie a server down and identify where it has been hacked and remove malicious code, but most important is the very specific expertise that is needed.
Most website development agencies don’t have the skill set to do this or to provide more hack resistant hosting. Often customers won’t pay for security expertise until something goes wrong: what we are seeing is more and more sites, particularly wordpress sites that we have had to rescue from hacking.
We advise a pre-emptive approach – secure your site now to avoid hacking.
