When talking with customers whose website have been hacked, our support teams often hear the question, ‘Why was my website hacked?’ Getting hacked is a violation. It is a violation of a company’s web properties, or the personal violation of someone’s small business or specialty site. Having the hard work of web development undone, even temporarily, is a difficult experience and SiteLock strives to restore that work as quickly as possible. Our teams are dedicated to this.
