How To Avoid Hackers From Destroying Your Site?

Steps to protect your web site:

1. Don't give out your username/password to anyone else.

Even if it's your own net/web/system admin. Chances are he/she already knows it for he/she can just login as admin to the control panel and look at your password.

2. Change your password once in a while.

It's better to write them down instead of saving them on a hard disk with insufficient firewall protection.

3. Don't use any word that can be found in dictionary or anything that signifies your birthdate, your street number to make it difficult for the hackers to guess.

4. Disable the "Forgot Password" utility on your site. This utility is very convenient to most end users, so fast that it gives out password so easy to for hackers to play with.

5. Make your password question / password answer (the one used to remind your forgotten password) difficult to guess. Treat it as a password. If anyone can just guess it, chances are hackers will start exploring with your account.

6. Make sure you are in constant contact with your web provider so they know your real identity and they can help you out as soon as there's hacking going on in your site.

7. Don't use any irc (internet relay chat) based chat system for it connects to ports 6660 to 6669. Hackers will exploit these ports and will upload trojan virus in your computer that can get your username/password on most of your accounts.
