Secure your WordPress sites!

Our site was recently defaced! We were caught in the crossfire between Malaysian and Filipino hackers who were hacking sites because of the Sabah issue. Unfortunately for us, since we are known to be a Philippine based site, we were targeted. Fortunately, there were no sensitive data that was compromised.

However, to make things secure, we scanned most of our servers and we found a few other sites defaced by the same group. It would seem they are going through wordpress themes that are unsecured. So we strongly advice our clients, specially those using wordpress to please make sure you have the latest themes and updated wordpress version. It would also be best to delete the old themes you are not using as well as the plugins you have deactivated. If you don’t need them, delete them.
