Running a Joomla! website can be rewarding or a nightmare. In it's self, Joomla is very secure but once you start installing those 3rd party plugins, that is where you can cause yourself a real headache. If you installed an insecure plugin, hackers can infect your website as fast as you can count to three. XSS or Cross Site Scripting is a method hackers can use to inject malicious code into your website which in turn can get your website blacklisted wit Google or even on a DNSBL (DNS Black List), the latter meaning your email server may get blocked from other servers who use the DNSBL as a means of stopping spam. This can create a nightmare for you and your hosting company. So what does it mean to have a hacked website? It could mean that you can’t access your pages anymore, or maybe you have unwittingly become a pharmaceuticals rep, or an agent for Russian porn! Whatever the case, it is bad news for you and the business that you’ve worked so hard to establish.
