Be Proactive and Protect your Joomla Website from Hacker Intrusions

Tips For Keeping Your Joomla Site Secure

We are kept quite busy restoring Joomla! websites that have been hacked and the sad thing is, virtually all of these attacks could have been prevented. Most Joomla attacks are a result of plugin/components vulnerabilities, weak passwords, and obsolete software. It's for this reason it's most important to keep up to date and secure.

Let this motivate you: Typically web hosting companies see between 100 – 1,000 unauthorized login attempts every single day at the sites they host. The vast majority of these are hackers using brute force techniques to get into websites. That’s why you should be ready; so take some precautions to minimize the risk of your website getting broken into.
