How can I protect myself?

  • Always keep your CMS (e.g. WordPress or Joomla) and the plugins up to date.
  • Don't just install every plugin/theme, but also inform yourself about it.
  • Install known security plugins
  • Subscribe to CMS newsletter or Shoph manufacturer's newsletter (to receive information about Updates/Security Vulnerabilities)
  • Use secure passwords. If a password is given to a web designer etc., change it again. If a password is issued to a web designer, etc., change it again when the collaboration is complete.
  • Use encrypted FTP "ftpes" (explicit encryption). How to set up a ftpes connection in different FTP programs is explained in our Instructions for setting up FTP programs explained.
  • Using the latest antivirus software on your local PC
  • Keep your local PC up to date (Windows Update, Adobe Products, Java etc)
  • Make regular (local) backups of your website data
  • Create the e-mail addresses webmaster@[DOMAIN] or info@[DOMAIN]. Google, for example, writes to these addresses to inform you of a block.

These measures can minimize the risk, but there is no total protection.
