Do you find this information scary or disturbing? So what can you do to protect yourself?

Never open a link that you don’t expect to receive:
Most hackers are able to hack a website using an email with a link that contains some sort of a virus – this technique is called “fishing”. The e-mail will most likely be written with spelling mistakes so that it’ll be easy to spot. Bottom line – never open a link from an unknown source or from a known source that wasn’t supposed to send you one. The safest bet is to send this e-mail to SPAM or if it is from someone you know, verify it with that person before you open the link.

Use an untivirus program
You must use an unti-Virus program on every computer you access you website from and you should also use an untivirus on your website. You should know that those programs are not the same.

Never use the same password on different websites:
This because if a hacker got access to one of your passwords he will be able to access all of your sites. You should use hard passwords and every one should contain capital letters, numbers and symbols.

Never use the password from your main e-mail account on your website:
If a hacker will hack your site and get access to your password, he will be able to access additional sensitive information because many additional services use your e-mail account to restore your passwords such as Facebook for ex.

Use a strong password, complex and up to date.
