Hacked Site Recovery Tips from Google

 
 

Google rolled out another neat feature yesterday, in fact it is a series of articles and videos intended to help webmasters in hacked site recovery. You can find out more about their announcement here or if you need to dive in and go over all of their resources you should visit Webmaster help for hacked sites page.

In their announcement post they clearly stress out the issue of need for advanced knowledge to battle with hacked sites, so their best tips are pointed towards preemptive measures:

“- Be vigilant about keeping software updated

- Understand the security practices of all applications, plugins, third-party software, etc., before you install them on your server. A security vulnerability in one software application can affect the safety of your entire site

- Remove unnecessary or unused software

-Enforce creation of strong passwords

-Keep all devices used to log in to your servers secure (updated operating system and browser)-Make regular, automated backups of your site
