Hacked WordPress sites (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I would like to know if something like this exits for ISPs, as it seems WP sites are being attacked all the time.

      • WordPress is the number one CMS system in the world, so it comes as no surprise that they will be attacked.
      • One of my ISP technical support guys told me that he has fixed over 100 hacked domains this month alone. This seems like a hell of a lot of wasted time and resources.
      • Software MUST exist for this problem and if not, write something to solve the problem and sell it to other ISPs.
      • The software would act as a kind of spam system, whereby it keeps and index of all the index.php files. The system should continuously be running over the WordPress index.php source code to check for keywords like "Ziqor" or "Hacked" etc.
      • You will never be ahead of the hackers, same as spam, but at least when a new attack happens and it becomes widespread, you can add it to the watchlist and a flag will go up as soon as keyword has been picked up.
      • If a red flag goes up, rename the index.php to "index.php_" and add the default ISP index.html holding page.
      • ISP can then fix the problem before the client has even seen any issues.
      • Then let the client know that they need to look into their WP security.

    Does something like this exist out there?

    Many thanks!

    Otherwise, is there a plugin for WordPress that can notify me via email if the site has been attacked?
