No, it's not like the movies. Hackers tend to just get into your website to put ugly, gaudy landing pages up demanding you to pay them a few hundred bucks to take it down, but it's very frustrating.
Sometimes though it is actually a real problem. If your website stores user information in the background or can be used to email your customers, being hacked can you cause you a lot of stress.
To avoid this, request a maintenance package with our web experts at Digital8. We will:
- Run scans of your site on a routine basis for vulnerabilities
- Update modules/plugins to ensure they are using the most secure and up to date versions
- Identify issues with your site before they cause you problems
- Let you know what work needs to be carried out to ensure your website is working for you
