It happens all the time.
Today’s “news” is that hackers have targeted CIA, Mexican, and Alabama websites.
But don’t be fooled. Just because you aren’t the CIA doesn’t mean they don’t want to take you down, too.
For many in the hacker community, it is all about sport, pride, just showing what they can do. One day you could log into your site and find it has been replaced with some mysterious, cryptic message, telling you that your site has been hacked, and who is taking the credit. Or worse…one day you could have a customer call you and ask what in the world is that gibberish on your site.
There are things you can do.
Strong passwords, of course.
Do you use WordPress? Ah….and was it automatically installed, through a cPanel utility perhaps? That’s not a good idea. You are giving hackers a huge head-start. They probably know your login id, they know the prefix on your database tables…
