Malware is a malicious software that has evolved into a million dollar business for criminals whose goal is to steal confidential information and data that can be sold to other criminals for profit. Initially, websites were infected by amateurs for fun. Now it is big business. When someone takes control of your website, all types of problems exist. Your customer’s website may be harmed by your infected site. You may lose business and income for the duration that your site is down. Also, the fact that your expensive website is compromised and may be destroyed is cause for concern.
The first step is to minimize the possibility of hacking. All websites run the risk of being hacked. But there are many preventive measures that you can do to make it difficult for hackers.
