Some Factors That Cause Websites Can Be Hacked

Web security is a very important aspect in the management of the website so that the website is not easily tampered with by the hands of pranksters in cyberspace. The use of free (open source) CMS is often an option because of the relatively cheap development cost factor, but the use of this kind of CMS is very prone to hacking action.


Can Be Hacked

THERE ARE SEVERAL FACTORS THAT MAKE A WEBSITE VULNERABLE TO BEING HACKED:

  • USE OF OPEN SOURCE CMS AS IS / WITHOUT MODIFICATION 

Website configuration by default will make it easier for hackers to find file information, directories, program files, databases, user data, database connection data, etc;;

  • CMS RARELY / NEVER UPDATED 

Website that uses CMS long enough and rarely or even never updated is very prone to be broken because over time will certainly appear some security issues related to the CMS;

  • CMS UNDERSTANDING IS VERY LIMITED 

Most free CMS users never do in-depth research and detail about the CMS to be used and implemented so that the understanding is limited only to the administrative side only, not to the level of understanding source code;

  • ABSENCE OF TRAIL AUDIT OR MODIFICATION LOG 

The absence of trail audits or reports that provide complete data related to modifications to the website will cause problems in finding, repairing and deleting backdoors on the website;

  • RARELY UPDATE THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS RELATED TO CMS SECURITY 

Most users whose websites are successfully hacked never or rarely follow the development of information related to cms security that is being used so often the website has been ignored before updates and patches;

  • LACK OF SECURITY AWARENESS OF WEBSITE ADMINISTRATORS 

Many website administrators are less aware of the aspects of internet security so act negligently and carelessly thus making it easier for intruders to enter and mess up their websites.
