I have been doing a lot of websites for clients, and this takes a lot of time to do.
However recently there has been the biggest worldwide hack attack on all WordPress websites ever.
What these guys are doing is they have use malware to gain access to 90 000 IP addresses worldwide (your computer and mine could be one of them – they do not do things to your computer – so you will never know)
This malware sits quietly in the background of your computer waiting to be told what to do.
Now they are using them to try to gain access to millions of WordPress websites.
Then they would change links and files inside those websites to use for back link spamming and other purposes.
What can you do about it.
The biggest threat to your website is the username. Too many people still have the user name as “admin”
This gives them the gap to be halfway into your website.
Then they try thousands of permutations of passwords.
Is your password very strong?
Something silly like 123456, password, mypassword, incorrect (LOL) or other stupid easy passwords are bad.
But then using acronyms is also bad. Like my website is small business opportunities – SBO123 would be bad.
How to fix it.
Simply go to your plugins and install a plugin called “better WP security”
then once it is installed, go to the dashboard and set up all the issues.
If you are stuck – email me and I will help you.
