It is not a new matter that in Indonesia there are not a few sites that have been hacked or cool languages have been “hacked” by unknown people. From the change in website appearance, DDOS attacks to theft of data contained on the website. Isn’t it horrifying if you hear such site hacking news? Or, has your site ever been a victim? Hmmm, several propositions and matters are not often the point of concentration of hackers in working on hacking. Want to know five arguments why is the website easy to hack? Let’s have the following review.
This is one of the arguments that is very often implemented by the user; the password used is not strong enough. Like a lock and lock, the username and password are access to the main door. Anyone can enter the website when the username and password are known. Likewise with all hackers who can scan passwords or commonly called “brute-force passwords.” The hacker will work on scanning the password according to the existing word list. For that, make sure if no one easily predicts your password. Always use a combination of letters, numbers and special characters. There are some ways you can do to increase the strength of your password. Please read the Tips and Tricks for Secure Passwords. Oh yes, besides that, don’t ever use the default username like “admin” or “admin123”.
Plugins and themes or commonly called site templates do indeed become their charm. In some CMS like WordPress, plugins, and issues are indeed a priority. Plugins are benefits that are created by third parties to beautify the website. There are some plugins that you can install on WordPress sites, and please read the 6 Free Plugins You Must Have! So even with the theme, there are not many free or paid themes/templates circulating in cyberspace. Well, this plugin and argument can be the reason why your website was hacked! For that, make sure you use official plugins and themes, don’t forget always to do updates and not infrequently install plugins!
Just like plugins and themes, even if the CMS is never updated, it becomes a target for hacker software. Make sure your CMS is either WordPress, Prestashop, Drupal, Joomla or OpenCart not infrequently in the latest version. Why should your website be upgraded?
