I’ve read an interesting thread in this forum about wp sites being hacked, and I’ve thought this could be helpful:
Sometimes is pretty obvious that your blog have been hacked, your visit your site and you can read the typical message “Hacked by…”
Of course this a headache, but it’s even worse when yor site has been hacked and you dont’t notice it …
Come on! This is impossible…
Oh, no my friend, this has happenned to me . Sophisticated hackers use sometimes a technique called “page cloaking”, this means that the blog that has being hacked serves a different page to real vistors (like you and me, we would see the “normal” page), an to spiders (like google, who would see the hacked version with outbound links to the pages the hacker wants to promote).
This is done on SEO purposes.
Go to Google and search for
viagra, cialis, sexshop…. site:yourdomain.com
If any results are displayed, be careful!, maybe your site has been hacked!!
