What should I do if my site is hacked?

Remove the content the hacker uploaded to your website. This may be a complex process as it may not be obvious where or what the hacked content is. You may need the help of a web specialist or website cleaning services.

 

Replace the hacked content with your local website copy.

 

Update your CMS and review your site’s security. Please refer to the CMS provider’s website and forums for information on security patches and version upgrades.

 

Ensure that your website is protected against future attacks i.e. for a start, update the anti-virus software on your computer and change your FTP password.
