Have you looked at your back-end lately?
We live in an amazing time where it’s really easy to launch a website that you can manage on your own. Click a few buttons here and there and you’re all ready to go. Afterall, WordPress is super easy and free!
Then off you go running your successful business. The website runs. Users can see it. You’re able to build traffic, sell products, or whatever it is you’re doing with your website.
But each day that passes by is another day that your website falls more and more vulnerable to all the behind the scenes exploits that exist in this world. Then one of 3 things happen to you:
- You get an email from your hosting company telling you that your website was compromised. If that’s the case, then that’s pretty good. You’re likely with a reputable hosting company.
- You get an email from a user that something is wrong with your website and you look and are horrified to find pharmaceutical ads for nothing that your users want.
- You don’t notice anything because the virus is doing something harmful on the backend – stealing your users’ information.

Hopefully, your website is in the clear and it’s time to focus on keeping it that way. Perhaps your website is not ok. The good news is that most of the time, it’s fixable. You just have to know what you’re looking for so don’t panic.
