Thousands of small business websites get hacked every single day of every single hour. Ask yourself this question; is your site safe and secure? The answer is most likely NO, or even this might come to mind:
- Hackers are only after the BIG websites.
- I’m only small they ain’t bothered with my website.
WEBSITE HACKERS ARE HUNGRY TO HACK YOUR WEBSITE, AND YOU COULD BE NEXT!
They will hack your website to upload fake PayPal or apple pages to your site. Next, they send out thousands of bogus emails like the one below.
Once an innocent person clicks on the link in the email, they ’ll be redirected to a hidden page on your website that looks identical to the PayPal login page. If the user enters their user ID and password, then the hacker has the user credentials and will soon wipe their account.
Another one, the pharma hack will attack vulnerable WordPress websites. This causes your website to list pharmaceutical products. This can be hard to identify due to the fact that the pages are hidden on your website. Google will list these pages in their search along with your legitimate web pages.
If your website isn’t serviced regularly, then it’s just a matter of time before you become the unlucky one.
Hackers use automated software that target server IP’s by the thousands. If you have an outdated WordPress site, your website could be next.
