MyOrionet is conducting a competition which is, webmaster who can listed his website on the first rank in Google will win. Today, WTJ commented on one of my post about MyOrionet had been hacked. The hacker named himself as Hacker_Amca and s/he (I don’t know the gender :p ) put link to other website. I don’t know what language used there. I think the website is from Tukey. Here is the print screen of the hacked website:
Lessons that we can learn from this situation are:
- Update your website scripts when there are new updates available
This is a must because the latest updates have bugs fixed and some upgrades that can improve the security of your website.
- Always backup your site and databases
Make a backup of your website everyday if you update your site contents everyday. If not, make backup at least once a week.
I’m no security expert but I have little knowledge how to prevent sites from being hacked. Hope we can learn something from what had happen to MyOrionet. [tags]hacker, hack, website[/tags]
