WordPress Websites Get Ransomware Attack

We get about 3-6 requests each year from clients in central Ohio who had a web developer build a WordPress site that eventually got hacked.  We are not security experts for web hacks but we've been there, done that enough times to know some basics.  If your website is running on WordPress you might want to check out this article in case you end up getting hacked soon.

There are a variety of secure web hosts out that that are built exclusively to host a WordPress site securely but the simplest way to avoid these incidents is to install the core of WordPress, turn automatic updates on and not install any WordPress plugins.  Give us a call if you need help.
