The My Martial Smarts Wordpress website was infected by a number of malware which had infected both the content on the site and the code files.
We first identified all of the malware that was installed on the site and removed it.
Following the removal of the malware, we harend the hosting environment and the Wordpress installation in order to minimise the threat of the site being exploited in the future.
The next step was to upgrade the Wordpress core and all installed plugins as this is the best way to prevent known issues from being exploited. We also implemented a maintenance programme for the site to ensure that it is continuously updated.
The last step in the process was to implement and test a backup and recovery process so that if the site was compromised in the future it could be quickly recovered.
We also implemented monitoring tools on the site to detect changes to the filesystem and alert our support team to any potential threat activity on the site.
