My WordPress Website Has Been Hacked!

WordPress websites can be some of the most vulnerable for getting hacked because of the popularity of the platform. Most of the time when people reach out for help, it's because their site was hacked once, they fixed it – and then it was hacked again.

"Why did my WordPress website get hacked again after I fixed it?"

When your WordPress site gets hacked for a second time, it's usually due to a backdoor created by the hacker. This backdoor allows the hacker to bypass the normal procedures for getting into your site, getting authentication without you realizing. In this article, I'll explain how to find the backdoor and fix it in your WordPress website.

So, what's a backdoor?

A "backdoor" is a term referring to the method of bypassing normal authentication to get into your site, thus accessing your site remotely without you even realizing. If a hacker is smart, this is the first thing that gets uploaded when your site is attacked. This allows the hacker to have access again in the future even after you find the malware and remove it. Unfortunately, backdoors usually survive site upgrades, so the site is vulnerable until you clean it completely.

Backdoors may be simple, allowing a user only to create a hidden admin user account. Others are more complex, allowing the hacker to execute codes sent from a browser. Others have an entire user interface (a "UI") that gives them the ability to send emails from your server, create SQL queries, etc.

Where is the backdoor located?

For WordPress websites, backdoors are commonly located in the following places:

1. Plugins – Plugins, especially out-dated ones, are an excellent place for hackers to hide code. Why? Firstly, because people often don't think to log into their site to check updates. Two, even if they do, people don't like upgrading plugins, because it takes time. It can also sometimes break functionality on a site. Thirdly, because there are tens of thousands of free plugins, some of them are easy to hack into to begin with.

2. Themes – It's not so much the active theme you're using but the other ones stored in your Themes folder that can open your site to vulnerabilities. Hackers can plant a backdoor in one of the themes in your directory.

3. Media Uploads Directories – Most people have their media files set to the default, to create directories for image files based on months and years. This creates many different folders for images to be uploaded to – and many opportunities for hackers to be able to plant something within those folders. Because you'd rarely ever check through all of those folders, you wouldn't find the suspicious malware.

4. wp-config.php File – this is one of the default files installed with WordPress. It's one of the first places to look when you've had an attack, because it's one of the most common files to be hit by hackers.

5. The Includes folder – Yet another common directory because it's automatically installed with WordPress, but who checks this folder regularly?

Hackers also sometimes plant backups to their backdoors. So while you may clean out one backdoor … there may be others living on your server, nested away safely in a directory you never look at. Smart hackers also disguise the backdoor to look like a regular WordPress file.

What can you do to clean up a hacked WordPress site?

After reading this, you might guess that WordPress is the most insecure type of website you can have. Actually, the latest version of WordPress has no known vulnerabilities. WordPress is constantly updating their software, largely due to fixing vulnerabilities when a hacker finds a way in. So, by keeping your version of WordPress up to date, you can help prevent it from being hacked.

Next, you can try these steps:

1. You can install malware scanner WordPress plugins, either free or paid plugins. You can do a search for "malware scanner WordPress plugin" to find several options. Some of the free ones can scan and generate false positives, so it can be hard to know what's actually suspicious unless you're the developer of the plugin itself.

2. Delete inactive themes. Get rid of any inactive themes that you're not using, for reasons mentioned above.

3. Delete all plugins and reinstall them. This can be time-consuming, but it wipes out any vulnerabilities in the plugins folders. It's a good idea to first create a backup of your site (there are free and paid backup plugins for WordPress) before you start deleting and reinstalling.

4. Create a fresh .htaccess file. Sometimes a hacker will plant redirect codes in the .htaccess file. You can delete the file, and it will recreate itself. If it doesn't recreate itself, you can manually do that by going to the WordPress admin panel and clicking Settings >> Permalinks. When you save the permalinks settings, it will recreate the .htaccess file.

5. Download a fresh copy of WordPress and compare the wp-config.php file from the fresh version to the one in your directory. If there's anything suspicious in your current version, delete it.

6. Lastly, to be completely sure your site has no hack (outside of using paid monitoring services), you can delete your site and restore it to a date that the hack wasn't there from your hosting control panel. This will delete any updates you've made to your site after that date, so it's not a great option for everyone. But at least it cleans you out and provides peace of mind.

In the future, you can:

1. Update your admin username and password. Create a new user with Administrator capabilities, then delete the old one you were using.

2. Install a plugin to limit login attempts. This will keep someone locked out after a certain amount of attempts to get in.

3. Password protect the WP-admin directory. This would be done through your website hosting control panel. If your hosting company uses cPanel, this is easily done with a couple clicks. Contact your host to figure out how to password-protect a directory or do a search for it on your hosting company website.

4. Create regular backups. By backing up your site regularly, you know you'll have a copy to restore the site with if it would get hacked. There are free and paid plugins available to help with this, or you may be able to create a backup of the entire account from your hosting control panel. Or, though slower but still an option, you can download the entire site via FTP software.

When it comes to security, it helps to take it seriously. Backing up your site is one of the best things to do, because your hosting company may not do this for you. Some may offer backups / restore features if you activate them, and some may create random backups every few weeks. But you don't want to rely on the host because this is not in their scope of services. To be more certain, you can use paid malware monitoring services and plugins to be able to watch your site so you don't have to worry about it.

Premier League Match Time: Bolton Vs Blackburn

It's Premier League match time at Reebok Stadium on Sunday, December 12, as Bolton host Blackburn in match week 17.

Bolton are coming off a 1-0 loss away to Man City in match week 16. Bolton had a mediocre outing in which Davies and Elmander were completely stifled by the Man City back-line. Joe Hart between the Manchester City posts was hardly tested, barring a free kick by Petrov that Hart kept out easily, and a Ricketts free-kick that almost helped Bolton equalise owing to an error by the 'keeper.

Owen Coyle's squad could not capitalise on a 10-man City after Kolarov was sent off in 79th minutes for a rough tackle on Ricketts.

Blackburn atoned for their abject 7-1 thrashing by Manchester United in match week 15 with an impressive 3-0 win against Wolves built on the back of Pedersen's set-piece wizardry. The Norwegian had a hand in each of the two goals by Dunn, and Nelsen.

Early in the game, Blackburn's back-line was found wanting, particularly Salgado who was slow on his feet, and Wolves had scoring opportunities in the first 15 minutes. But it was Salgado's long ball to Richards that set up the second goal on 42 minutes after Emerton latched onto the ball flicked into his path by Richards, to get a left-footer home. Robinson had a good day between the posts for Blackburn as he kept out several scoring attempts by Wolves.

After Bolton are firmly ensconced in sixth place after 16 games, while Blackburn who went up to eighth could be leapfrogged by Sunderland, Newcastle or Liverpool after their respective games in match week 16.

Head to head, in 22 league matches between the sides, Blackburn enjoy a 8-3 win-loss ratio against Bolton, with 11 games drawn.

Bolton's home record has been reasonable with a solitary loss in eight games hosted, but they would want to improve on their win percentage with just three of those games won with the remaining four drawn.

Blackburn's away record has been good, too, with the Rovers losing just 2 of eight games on the road, with four wins.

On current form, you can expect a hard-fought game between two well-matched teams.

The following players were in Bolton's starting eleven against Man City: Jaaskelainen, Ricketts, Cahill, Knight, Robinson, Lee, Davies, Muamba, Petrov, Elmander and Davies. Taylor, Moreno and Klasnik played as substitutes.

Blackburn's starting eleven against Wolves comprised Robinson, Salgado, Samba, Nelsen, Givet, Jones, Emerton, Dunn, Pedersen, Diouf and Roberts. The substitutes used were Diouf, Morris and Mwaruwari.

Mastering Mathematics – Divisibility Rules

To master mathematics, you have to know the rules. The more tools you have in that tool shed, the more likely one will get the job done. Here, we explore divisibility properties for the numbers up to 11. Once you add these properties to your arsenal, you will be that much further along to mastering this most difficult subject.

Divisibility Tests for Numbers:

2: If the number is even, that is, if the number ends in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8, then that number is divisible by 2. Thus, 358 and 4,034,032 are divisible by 2.

3: If the sum of the digits of the number is divisible by 3, then the given number is also. Thus, 324 and 1,345,611 are both divisible by 3 since the sums of their digits, 9 and 21, respectively, are both divisible by 3.

4: If the last two digits of the number are divisible by 4, then so is the number. Thus, 312 and 1,024 are both divisible by 4.

5: If the number ends in 0 or 5, then the number is divisible by 5. Thus, 1,000 and 405 are both divisible by 5.

6: If a number is divisible by both 2 and 3, then the number is divisible by 6. You can test divisibility by 2 and 3 using the tests above. Once this is established, you are certain that the number is divisible by 6. Thus, 312 and 4,002 are both divisible by 6. Another way of saying this is if the number is even and the sum of the digits is divisible by 3, then the number is divisible by 6.

7: This rule is probably the most labor intensive of all. Yet, this rule works very well, especially when dealing with large numbers. Let us illustrate it with a specific example. Take the number 2,667. To determine whether this number is divisible by 7, we do the following: we take the last digit, namely 7, multiply it by 2 to get 14 and subtract this from the three digits, namely 266, that remain after we remove the 7. Thus 266 – 14 = 252. Repeat the procedure and we have 2×2 = 4; 25 – 4 = 21, and 21 is divisible by 7. Generally, repeat the procedure until you get to a number that is a few multiples of 7, so that you recognize the divisibility by this number.

8: If the last three digits form a number divisible by 8, then the entire number is divisible by 8. Thus, 4,096 and 1,016 are divisible by 8.

9: As with 3, if the sum of the digits forms a number divisible by 9, then the number is too. Thus, 108 and 3,240 are divisible by 9.

10: This is probably the easiest rule. Simply, if the number ends in 0, then it is divisible by 10.

11: If the alternate sum of the digits results in a number that is divisible by 11, including 0, then the entire number is divisible by 11. For example, take the number 5,082. Perform 5-0+8-2 = 11. Since 11 is divisible by 11, obviously, then the entire number is as well.

Learn these divisibility properties and I guarantee that your knowledge in and ability with mathematics will grow exponentially. For those parents who want their children to perform better in math, then see that your children master these rules. For then, the sky truly will be the limit.

Pre-Season Soccer Training – The Basics

Effective pre-season training is important for all soccer players of any age, whether you play for a team in the Premier League or your local college team and the work done in pre-season can define the competitive season ahead, making the difference between winning trophies or being also-rans.

The Pre-season soccer training schedule should be planned out by the coach in order to maximise each session. Ideally training should begin at least five to six weeks before the season actually starts.

Each training session should start with a thorough warm-up taking care not to strain any muscles in early pre-season. Ideally each session should begin with a five minutes gentle jogging followed by gentle static stretching, followed by more jogging followed by a more intensive stretching session, while taking care not to over stretch and cause damage to muscles, tendons or ligaments.

Stretching for soccer should include all major muscle groups, with a mixture of dynamic and static stretches. Dynamic stretching exercises that are perfect for soccer and include swinging the arms and circling the shoulders, twisting the upper body and swinging the legs as if kicking an imaginary ball, be careful not to over stretch with these exercises. Static stretches do not involve movement of the joint and are essential for the quadriceps and hamstrings. Ballistic stretches which involve bouncing to maximise the stretch are no longer advocated and should be avoided.

Running is excellent for aerobic conditioning and should be encouraged as improved fitness will pay dividends later in the season, this should involve distance work, sprinting and running that involves work with the soccer ball. Dribbling the soccer ball around cones or across a defined area will improve conditioning, speed and ball control at the same time.

Work with the soccer ball can be extended by spending time controlling the ball with the feet, knees and head, a perfect way to practice this is to divide players into pairs and have one player throw the ball while the other controls and returns to his partner.

Each session can be completed with a short game possibly integrating two touch soccer which will improve ball control and passing accuracy and also encourage thinking and movement off the ball. Following the game a cool down with stretching should take place to minimise aching and tired muscles which will aid recovery for your next session.

During early pre-season is it important not to over exert the players and to make the sessions fun which will motivate if players are tired not too push them too much, this can result in injury and lack of enthusiasm. Another important factor for any training session is adequate hydration, ensure all the players have a water bottle and keep adequately hydrated throughout the training session.

The Case Against Using An Autoresponder

I've had to put on my best armor today.

Why? Because I'm no doubt gonna get one hell of a backlash from certain people. After all, email marketers are supposed to love autoresponders.

Aren't they?

Well, hold your horses. Because I'm here to tell you why you should be sending daily emails (as daily broadcasts) as opposed to relying on an autoresponder sequence.

Ready? Let's get straight into it …

1) You can't be "current" with an autoresponder

One of the best things about daily email, is that you get to talk about current events.

And when you talk to your prospects about current things that are happening in the world, they're gonna pay attention.

Want an example? Okay then. When Leicester won the Premier League, it gave me something current to talk about. And it turned out to be one of the most profitable emails I've written. I reckon this was just because people could relate to it, as it had only just happened.

TV series' and films also make for great email fodder. Again, clearly you have to be current when talking about these.

But if you relied on an autoresponder, you couldn't exactly be "current", could you …

2) You risk "losing" a lot of people because of one email

Look, even I write a poor email once in a while (I know, shock horror, right ?!).

But that doesn't matter. Because I can just make sales the next day with a better email. And that poor email would then be consigned to history.

But if that same email was in an autoresponder sequence, every single person who joined my list in the future would also receive it. Yes, I know you could take it out or change it. But that's making things harder than they need to be. Sending daily emails is just so less complicated.

3) Autoresponders don't tend to "pitch" in every single email

Look, I know you can easily make an autoresponder with a sales pitch in every email.

But the fact of the matter is, most autoresponders don't. Instead, they tend to tell a story that is told over the course of numerous emails, before then pitching a product / service.

Now, listen.

I'm sure this works.

There are certainly guys who do successfully use autoresponders. Andre Chaperon and John McIntyre spring to mind.

But I believe Ben Settle is the best email marketer in the world. And he does daily email. And, yes, he pitches every single day – without having to take anyone through a long-winded story sequence. Clearly, you're gonna make money faster doing it Ben's way. And I like fast. I'm sure you do, too.

Anyway, I'm not saying autoresponders are the devil.

Far from it.

In fact, they do have some advantages over daily broadcasts.

But you know what? For me personally, nothing has come even close to beating daily email when it comes to making sales.

And trust me, if you do it right, it'll be the same for you, too.

Denis Law Was the King of Stretford End

The great Denis Law was born in Aberdeen on the 24th February 1940 and he began his soccer career as a wee boy playing for Aberdeen Lads Club. When Law left the Granite City to join the once great Huddersfield Town, he was only 15 years old and and it didn't take him long to make his debut for his native Scotland against Wales in 1958.

The legendary Sir Matt Busby reputedly wanted the promising Denis Law to play for Manchester United but was turned down by the Terriers. Bill Shankly, who was the manager at Huddersfield Town at the time, then tried to take Law with him to Liverpool. However, the Liverpudlians didn´t have the money to take the prolific marksman out of Yorkshire. Instead, the vastly talented Leeds Road youngster went to Manchester City when the Maine Road club paid a then British record transfer fee of £ 55,000 for him in March 1960. After a rather disappointing spell with famous Italian club Turin, he returned to Lancashire finally signing up for Busby´s Manchester United in 1962. Denis Law opened the 1963-64 season on a bright note and was deservedly picked out to play for a Rest of the World side against England at Wembley. As a Manchester United player, the Scottish international won every major domestic honor, although injury kept him out of the European Cup Final against Benfica at Wembley in 1968.

Denis Law returned to his old club Manchester City in 1973, and retired from football in 1974 after playing his last match in the World Cup in West Germany. During his 585 matches for his clubs, he managed to score a massive 300 goals. He also scored a total of 30 goals for Scotland in 55 matches. In 1964, Law was voted European Footballer of the Year as the only Scotsman to this day. Always in the best of spirits, Denis Law was no doubt one of the greatest entertainers ever witnessed on the British soccer scene. He was not only a Danny Kaye look alike, he also closely resembled the American comedian when performing some of his antics on and off the football pitch.
