You're thrilled with your new website and are adding blog posts and new content just like we told you - but there's one important thing missing - WEBSITE MAINTENANCE.
If you're not updating your WordPress AND plugin versions you're setting yourself up for trouble.
Once the vulnerability was discovered, the plugin was updated and the attack was blocked. BUT, 70% of WordPress sites are using outdated versions of the core software and plugins.
This means that 52,256,977 websites were still vulnerable to being hacked!
A hacked website means lost business, lost customers and lost trust within your community.
In December 2014 the security team at Sucuri discovered that over 100,000 WordPress websites were compromised due to a vulnerability found in a popular image slider plugin.
Removing malware from your website is both time consuming and expensive.
Even once you've cleaned your website, Google will not remove the blacklist status automatically. You must request a review. This can take up to 24 hours or more. During this time your clients will continue to see a security warning.
