Help, I was hacked!
In most cases you got hacked because your website, theme and/or plugins were not up-to-date.
“Hackers” often discover vulnerabilities in the code and will attempt to take advantage of this. In most cases no human action is even needed throughout this process.
Most attacks are not pointed at a specific website or organisation, but are done through automated scripts scanning the Internet for sites that might be suitable candidates for an exploit. When these scripts detect software with a vulnerability, an automated script is executed that installs malicious software on that website (for instance phishing pages or spam mailing software). Keeping your software updated and having security measures in place will protect you from that.
Can you fix my website?
Probably yes. Until now we were able to fix every hacked website we came across, but that’s not a guarantee.
If for instance your website files have been deleted and there are no back-ups, chances of recovery are close to zero. That’s one of the reasons we advice everybody to back-up their installs.
How much does it cost to fix my website?
Sadly there isn’t a fixed number we can give you for that. What we do first is analyse the situation to see what we can do. This usually takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour. After the analyses we will give you a proposal.
Our rate is €85 /h during office hours and €120 /h after office hours or during the weekend.
Running updates is easy, what can go wrong?
In a prefect world an update is a matter of pressing a button and your website runs perfectly on the latest software. In the real world however that isn’t always the case. After an update conflicts between server software, the CMS and plugins are a very common problem. These issues then need to be resolved and there is no button in your CMS that you can press to make that happen. In short updating isn’t always straight forward, not updating however, is not an option either.
