Over the last two weeks I’ve cleared up four hacked sites. Two of them were at HostMySite and two of them were at BlueHost. One of them had been maintained regularity and three hadn’t. Three of them, the ones that weren’t maintained, had been hacked multiple times.
Having updated WordPress software and security plugins won’t guarantee that your site won’t be hacked. However it’ll lesson the odds that your site will be breached. Also, having site backups (including theme backups) makes site restoration after the hack much easier.
