How to prevent your blog from getting hacked

Madalas akong makabasa sa facebook lalo na sa mga group ng bloggers na na-hacked ang blog nila, kaya naisipan kong magtanong sa host ko…baka kasi mamaya blog ko naman ang pagtripan, wala na ngang kwenta blog ko, mawawala pa! lolzz

Eto ang reply nung support na kausap ko;

Yes. We perform daily backups but these back-ups are intended solely for Web.com.ph’s administrative purposes. Customers are responsible for maintaining their own set of back-up files.

We recommend to always update your script like Joomla, WordPress, Drupal to the latest stable version to avoid being hacked. We installed some security tools that will secure our servers.

Please maintain the following:

1. Update passwords regularly. Use strong or complex passwords.
2. Do not access important files or login details inside netcafes or internet shops.
3. 3rd-party scripts or applications such as Joomla, WordPress, phpBB or SMF should be updated regularly via the developers’ patches.
4. Before uploading or updating your website, make sure your computer is not compromised with Trojans, Viruses or Malwares. Frequent intrusions are caused by FTP uploads of exploited hackers’ scripts.
5. Lastly, secure a local backup of your files consistently. This can be done via cPanel > Backups > Download or Generate a Full or Home Directory backup.

Ayun! Kahit pala may daily backup ang host mo, di mo pa rin magagamit. Dapat may sarili kang backup files na pwedeng iupload kung sakaling ma-hacked ang blog mo at sila na bahalang magrestore…

We can restore your backup. You will only upload the backup tar file.

Ngayon, kung self hosted ang blog mo, download ka na ng plugin na pang-backup…para di ka na mag-alala kung sakaling ma-hacked man ang blog mo…

Mas mabuti ring mag-inquire ka sa host mo para at least alam mo kung ano ang dapat gawin kung sakaling mangyari ang mga di inaasahang bagay..

Pahabol ng host ko;

Please note we do not guarantee our backup’s integrity. It could happen we have backed-up a hacked website so it is now useless. The responsibility of backups and downloading copies to locally rest on the web designer/developer. Most importantly, it is the responsibility of the web designer/developer to update all 3rd party applications from hacking.

At mula kay John ng Semidoppel’s Report wag daw nating kalimutan ang Antivirus at wag basta-basta antivirus, dahil may mahihinang klase nito, at ayon sa kanya;

    for Joomla! maraming trusted plugins na ginagamit para maback-up mo ang file mo into one file like Akeeba.

    Yun ibaback-up nun lahat ng directories mo. For wordpress and Drupal, di pa kasi ako nakagamit ng dalawang yun so wala ako mapayo.. 🙂

      gusto ko gumamit ng joomla pero sabi nila parang mahirap daw, kung di rin lang maalam sa programming mag wordpress na lang 😀

    Isa lang ang ibig sabihin nito!

    Pag na-hack ang blog ko. Paktay! Dahil kahit alin jan sa sinabi mo maliban sa pagpalit ng password wala na kong ibang alam sa tachnical instructions! Ugh.

    Pero teka, weekly change of password?!?!?! Eh lubog litaw na nga ako sa blog ko eh.. lolz

    Anyway, laki ng pinagbago ng blog since nung last akong nandito.. Simple but complicated…haha!

    Cheers CM!

    • LordCM says

      Yun lang! 😀 … pero sabi nila mas safe daw ang blogspot, kaya swerte ka pa rin 🙂

      Complicated ba talaga? pangalawa ka na kasi sa nagsabi nyan 🙁

  3. says

    May mag-iinteres kaya sa blog ko? LOL. Ang effort naman ng weekly palitan ng password. Unique combination naman na siguro ang password ko. Medyo kinabahan ako nung binabasa ko to, feeling ko baka nga mahack. Haha.

  4. says

    dapat di basta kumukuha ng mga plugins sa di reliable na source kasi ung iba dun may code na nakainsert na pwedeng maging way para mahack ang blog mo

  5. says

    hehe! Ayos to. 😀 dagdag lang, kasi minsan ang hinahack sa blog e yung adsense lang. Papaltan yung pub id mo. 😀 di mu un mapapansin agad. Hahaha.

  6. says

    pare, nitong mga nakararaang araw ay nagiging teki na ang mga post mo. magaling! ikinatutuwa ko ng lubos. salamat sa mga info.

    • LordCM says

      ako iwas talaga ako kapag sa net cafe, minsan kasi ung may ari mismo ng net cafe ang naglalagay ng software para makuha ung mga pinagta-type mo sa pc nila…

    • LordCM says

      siguro ok na ung monthly para sa pag change ng password…pero ung backup, kung pwedeng daily, daily na ntin gawin…pero kung bihira naman ang posting, kahit weekly rin lang.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this Charlie!

    Kahit yung blog ko hindi ganun ka active, I still want to make sure that I can avoid this kind of problems and good thing is, your post is very timely for me!

    Malaking bagay talaga pag mainform ka lalo pa’t tulad ko na hindi pro blogger. Mukhang may new blog akong aabangan lagi ah! Keep on sharing!

    • LordCM says

      hehehe, nagkataon kasing usapan sa group yan kaya naisipan kong i-email ung host ko, sumagot naman agad kaya ni-share ko na para sa inyo 🙂

    • LordCM says

      tinanong ko rin sa sarili ko yan Ms.N, nasaan na ung mga personal na article ni LordCM? lolzz, ewan ko ba bakit wala akong maisip na isulat sa ngayon…sana bukas meron na 🙂

    I think a good hacker doesn’t need to know what your password is. Kung talagang pupuntiryahin nila ang website mo, you can’t do anything. Ang government sites nga nahahack. There are some really talented hackers na god-like ang pag-hack. There’s this one hacker in Baguio (tsismis lang) na one time he was able to cause a massive blackout. I don’t know how he pulled that off.

    • LordCM says

      wow!parang die hard 4 lang yun ah. pero tama ka, kung yung Pentagon nga na secured sa lahat ng bagay napapasok ng hackers eh…

      malamang tutuo yang tsismis mo pre, daming magagaling sa baguio, nakatago lang..
