Hacked... the very last thing you want to happen to your site.
Whether you're a site owner, a development professional, or somewhere in between, no one wants their website hacked. The time and effort required to restore your site after an attack, if it can be restored, makes it worth investing some time to learn best practices to keep your site safe and sound.
