Vlad Lasky: Tips for Fixing A Hacked WordPress Site – WordCamp Sydney 2016



WordPress’s popularity has made it a prime target for hackers. Each day countless self-hosted WordPress sites are damaged or taken down, usually by automated attacks exploiting known vulnerabilities.

Many WordPress site administrators only learn way too late about the important of pre-emptive security hardening after they have become victims of an attack and have suffered the consequences – loss of visitors, search engine ranking and damage to data.

Vlad Lasky from Aussie WP Expert shares his strategies and approaches to recovering compromised WordPress sites.

Common ways in which WordPress sites are compromised:
* Assessing the damage
* Determining the means of infiltration
* Recovering the WordPress installation
* Preventing reinfection
* Restoring Search Engine ranking

This talk was recorded at WordCamp Sydney 2016. We have our free monthly meetups in three locations across Sydney. The WordPress Sydney Meetup is for any WordPress user from new to experienced to get together and discuss all things WordPress.
