Sorry about that. These cases are on the increase. People want to take advantage of others' efforts. I would suggest having all the necessary mitigation measures in place before letting your site go live.Yes it happened twice and one time he took over on my website but lucky that my hosting company act very fast and save my website, although I lost some data and traffic but at least I recover my website back.
Sorry about that. These cases are on the rise. Especially since the pandemic forced most of the things to be done online. Most of the VA we have today do not have etiquette. And some are just hackers. It is important to spend time to see their trustworthy rating before engaging them in your site.Yes, there is this one time a VA i hired tried to take my site. But he could not get the Authentication code. So it did not go through. It really freaked me out. From that day, i only hire VAs from reputable freelance sites.
It happens to someone I knew in my neighbourhood , the man has a betting site and he applied someone to be working for him but later when the guys leaves , he went behind to hijack and shange the owner password .I used to work for a site that was hijacked by a disgruntled co-worker. I knew the site owner well, and he got me a job there. I didn't know the guy all that well, but he seemed like a jerk from our correspondence. We didn't talk much either, thank goodness. Anyway, that's not what this is about.
This is about the time he took over the site. He was able to get on the backside of the site and changed the site owners details, as well as mine. I found out when I couldn't sign into my account, and then I saw what he did. He put pornography all over the site and left it be. The site owner had to reachout to godaddy to get the site back and remove the content. It was rough.
Has anyone done this, or tried to hijack or hack your site? I worry all the time someone will mess with my sites.
I have heard of many stories of people's site being hacked but I have never had a site before that is been hacked by my worker.They have been such cases before but I have personally not experience it. Even though I do not have my own site but I think I would like to do so soon.
Some times even those you think are trusted could have some ulterior motives and it is very hard to know and identify the honest ones .No one which has ever labored on my webweb page earlier than has ever hijacked it shape me. I wager I will should be cautious on whom I allow to have get right of entry to to my webweb page admin settings
Seriously this will be one of the worst experience someone can ever face. It is always advisable that you only deal with trusted people because that is the only way you'll be able to prevent this.That must have been a very terrible experience for those who've experienced such senseless behavior. For me, nobody that has ever worked on my site has ever hijacked it before
