Hacker Attacks

Last week my websites were hacked several times. First 2 times under attack was only my root domain, however now all my addon domains also were hacked. I am using wordpress on my websites and also installed several security plugins, however it didn't help. If it matters - i am using Brainhost's cheap hosting plan.Those hacker attacks become pretty annoying - are there any measures i can take to prevent that?

Hi triangular_plutonium,

I'm sorry to hear that. I think there are plugins you can use to prevent these on your Wordpress sites. You might also want to look at the folders and sub-folders in your control panel and make sure they have the correct permissions. I think directories need to have a permission of 755 and files need to have permission of 644. Your Wordpress config file need to have a permission of 400.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Cecille, which files and folders do i need to select to set permissions in Cpanel? I have a big list of folders in my file manager so i do not know which folders or files i need to select


And what checkboxes do i need to check to make these permission? I mean there are read, write, execute options for user, group and world
