Why a Special Service Hack Monitor Service for WordPress, Anyway?
Because of the popularity of WordPress as a content management system for websites, hackers have stepped up their attacks on sites running WordPress. New versions are released regularly to combat this, as are most popular plugins (as long as the author updates the plugin, which sometimes they don’t). Security vulnerabilities are a threat for any website, and while a WordPress site is generally safe if kept updated and protected with security plugins, no site is “bulletproof”. If your site has been hacked before, you may be especially vulnerable to new attacks, as hackers can create backdoors or leave scripts in your site that will activate at a later time.
It’s Important to Immediately Detect if Malware Has Infected Your Site
We have teamed up with a website security firm to offer this hack monitoring service. For starters, we will activate all the logs within your hosting account. Then we will monitor them every day, throughout the day, for any changes that occur. If a hacker adds a file, we’ll see it, scan it and remove it.
In addition, we will keep your WordPress installation up to date with the latest stable version (which is sometimes not the most recent version) and keep your plugins updated as well.
You may benefit from this service if:
- Your site is currently hacked, or you have received a warning from Google or your hosting company about malicious files on your site.
- Your site has been hacked in the past
- You don’t update your WordPress version or plugins on a regular basis
- You are concerned your site may be targeted by hackers, or can’t afford for your website to be down for a substantial length of time.
