My site has recently been hacked. Having regained control of it and sorted out the hack I am looking to implement solutions to prevent it being hacked again.
A lot of people seem to be saying that http://www.sitelock.com is pretty much essential. I have been blogging a while and have a lot of posts and for my site this is $99 a month or $1200 a year. This for a blog that up to now cost $60 a year and that runs no ads or affiliate schemes.
Given the open-source attitude of WordPress and the community I am amazed that everyone is recommending a paid resource particularly one that is costing so much more than every other aspect of running a blog.
Anyway, I am interested to know other peoples' thoughts, what you have implemented, options instead of http://www.sitelock.com and so on.
