Why was my website compromised?

The most common reasons are:

  • Outdated web application. Keep your application updated to the latest available version to make sure that all core security vulnerabilities for it are patched;
  • Outdated web application extensions;
  • Plugins/modules/components downloaded from unofficial sources;
  • Weak user/administrator passwords;
  • Weak My Account/FTP accounts passwords;
  • Infected local computer. Always make sure to have updated antivirus software and scan your computer for viruses regularly. We recommend Kaspersky antivirus for most advanced and up-to-date protection.
