We have noticed an increased number of clients who haven't been updating their website software, scripts and plugins, which has resulted in them either being hacked, or having malware injected into them. The most common ones which have been targeted are Wordpress and Joomla content management systems. Content management systems are great, as they allow people to easily and quickly update their websites, however they do require the software running in the back-end to be regularly updated. If you are running software on your website, please make sure you regularly update the scripts in your hosting space with the most recent software. It is the website owners responisbility to make sure their website scripts are up to date at all times. Not only will this help to keep your website safe and secure from hackers, it will reduce the work we need to do in dealing with an account that has been compromised. If we detect a problem on the server with a compromised hosting account, our immediate action is to suspend the clients account until the problem has been fixed to minimise problems for other users on the server, which results in downtime for the clients website and other services.

More information on updating your website scripts can be found at http://loungenetwork.co.nz/faqman/index.php?op=view&t=359
