If you are a small to medium sized company, using a platform such as WordPress for example, automated hacks can be carried out.

Not wanting to generalise, but the majority of these hackers are teenagers with a lot of time on their hands and therefore attack to keep themselves entertained.

If your website is blacklisted because of a hacking attack, you will lose your SEO ranking on a search engine page and this can take months for you to recover your place on these pages.

A hacker can also use a technique called a ‘backdoor’ which means they can gain access to your website even when you assume you have got rid of all infected files.
