How to fix a hacked site with mySites.guru

So it happened. Your site was finally hacked. Dont panic.

BACKUP! (Dont Restore)!

Do it now. Backup your site. Even if its hacked. Backup right now. Done? ok.

Next, you will read some “Experts” talk about restoring your site from the last clean backup – this should only ever be done as a last ditch attempt!

By restoring you are wiping away crucial evidence, details that someone like me with experience can use to understand how you were hacked in the first place. By restoring you wipe the slate clean, but re-introduce the same security hole that allowed you to be hacked in the first place!

Out of your depth? Out of time? Just want an expert fix?

You can check the status of these files at any time on the Snapshot Tab.

After a snapshot is taken in mySites.guru, we display the number of files that are found in the snapshot results page

myJoomla rebranding to mySites.guru

mySites.guru logo
The mysites.guru logo
The new logo

As our service now supports Joomla and WordPress CMS’s, its no longer appropriate to be called “myjoomla.com” and therefore we have changed the service name to mySites.guru.

For a limited time myJoomla.guru and myWP.guru will be used to market to individual segments of the market specific to one of the platforms, but moving forward mySites.guru will be the new name, and home of our service.
