One of my websites was recently hacked. It was a Wordpress site of course.


I do not blame anyone but myself for not taking proper precautions...the site had been unpatched for a while and the appropriate setting had not been made. If you have a Wordpress or a cleint has a WP site, the latest updates should be installed:


After that, if you have not already done so, add the following setting into the WP configuration file. Open the wp-config.php file, in the root folder, of your WordPress installation and add this line to it: 

define('WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', true);

HTH someone.
