WPSitter - Maintenance & Support WordPress

Hacked WordPress cleanup

Is your WordPress website not behaving as usual? It could be hacked, infected by viruses or contaminated by malicious scripts. Don’t let hackers ruin your online presence.

Unfortunately, WordPress sites are hacked more often than you might think. Hackers are constantly on the lookout for security loopholes, and owners of sites that aren’t regularly updated often fall victim…

The figures don’t lie. According to a recent study, almost 42% of WordPress sites have vulnerabilities that make them susceptible to hacking (see source in FAQ).

In 93% of cases, this is due to extensions installed by webmasters. These may contain security flaws, or worse, are not updated to deploy patches. Which just goes to show how important it is to maintain your website properly.

What are the risks of a hacked WordPress site?

Loss of personal or sensitive data

All your data is at risk when your site is hacked. Confidential information such as payment details, customer contact details or even personal data can be compromised or intercepted. Not only can this cause you legal problems, it can also damage your customers' trust.

Decline in traffic and revenue

When a site is compromised, it can suffer a significant drop in traffic. Search engines detect hacked sites and mark them as unsafe for visitors, resulting in a drastic drop in ranking. What's more, visitors may be deterred from visiting your site due to security problems, resulting in a potential loss of revenue.

Damage to online reputation

A site's reputation takes years to build up, and can be ruined in a matter of days. When your site is hacked, it sends a negative signal to your visitors and potential customers. Hackers may post malicious content, unwanted ads or even make threats on your site. This can damage your brand image and credibility, which is difficult to repair.

Unforeseen financial expenses

The financial consequences of a hacked WordPress site can be considerable. Not only will you have to invest in cleaning up and restoring your site, but you'll also have to deal with potential legal action, fines or refunds related to the breach of your customers' data. These unforeseen costs can put your business in financial difficulty.

Discovering a hacked site can be an extremely stressful experience for any site owner.

The security of your WordPress site has been compromised, and this can lead to sleepless nights filled with worry and anxiety. You wonder if your data is safe, if your reputation will be damaged and if you’ll be able to recover quickly.

The stress of a hacked site can have a negative impact on your emotional and physical well-being, as well as on your ability to concentrate on other aspects of your business. All this can build up and affect your motivation, self-confidence and passion for your business.

Some signs point to a hacked WordPress website, such as unauthorized content changes, unexpected redirects, frequent error messages or slow performance. If you have any doubts, our team can perform a full security analysis to detect any malicious activity.

Our WordPress site cleanup service begins with a thorough assessment of the situation. We identify and remove malicious files, unwanted scripts and compromised code. We then strengthen your site’s security by applying WordPress security best practices to protect you in the future.

How long it takes to clean up a hacked WordPress website depends on the complexity of the intrusion and the size of your site. In most cases, we can clean and secure your site within 24 to 48 hours. However, more complex situations may take a little longer.

In addition to cleaning up, we implement advanced security measures to protect your site against future attacks. This includes installing firewalls and security plugins, as well as implementing strong password strategies.

We also recommend subscribing to one of our WordPress maintenance packages to benefit from regular WordPress core, plugin and theme updates and automatic backups (list not exhaustive).

We offer a full cleanup guarantee. If your site is hacked again within 60 days of our intervention, we’ll clean it free of charge.

However, we also recommend that you maintain sound security practices and take steps to actively protect your website.

The study we’re relying on comes from Patchstack, a solution specialized in WordPress security.
