My Web Site has been Hacked

If you believe your web site has been hacked.  Please open a support ticket immediately.  Someone from our security team will temporarily disable the site and investigate the problem.  In most cases, we are able to recover your site from a known-good backup prior the break in.  Afterwards, we typically upgrade any software you're running on your web site that may be out-of-date.

Most web site hacks are the result of out-of-date software running on your web site.  As a prevention, we always recommend that you keep the software running on your site, like WordPress or Joomla, and any other modules or themes, up-to-date.
