Unless you’re the FBI, the government or someone else with a high profile organization, you won’t be getting targeted by sophisticated hackers such as Anonymous. However, there are plenty of amateur hackers who use automated scripts to penetrate people’s web security and deface their website and cybercriminals driven by financial motives – these are the most dangerous as they will try to hide their attacks so that the website hack remains active for months.
Cybercriminals wish to steal sensitive data such as credit-card details and intellectual property or take control of your website to distribute their malware or redirect all your customers to websites they control where they run online scams.
A new form of attack is “SEO poisoning” – where your website is used to drive search traffic to the hackers website (usually to sell pharmaceuticals or fake anti-virus software). The worst thing is that you won’t notice the attack when viewing your website – this attack is only visible when searching via Google for your website.
The cost to you when your website is hacked include loss of customers, loss of trust – and Google will downgrade your website if it finds your website infected with malware and warn users not to visit your website. In addition you face the high costs of cleaning up your website and restoring all functionality. If you have no backup plan you could even lose your website completely!
