Due to some security irregularities and my carefree nature, gauravtiwari.org was hacked and spammed with negative SEO keywords. The hacking happened due to security loosening at Cloudflare and, continued to disturb the site for more than two weeks.
Luckily, I had noticed it quite early and already started working on the fix.

Before fixing, I made sure that the hack remained hidden and didn’t show to the readers. Since, it was the first time I was handling a hacked website – it took more time than expected. I had to read several guides on how & what to do when your site is hacked and all.
I feel really proud to tell you that after two weeks of security checks and database edits, I have completely recovered gauravtiwari.org at my own. The security measures are now tightened at the highest level. Since this hack didn’t operate on the database – no data was transferred to the hackers.

The following guides helped me in this meantime.

  1. How to Clean a Hacked WordPress Site using Wordfence
  2. How to Find a Backdoor in a Hacked WordPress Site and Fix It
  3. My site was hacked
  4. Tips and Tools to Recover a Hacked WordPress Site

No spam keywords will be shown from now. However, if there exists one and you find that growling – please take a moment to report the details to the contact form. Your questions are welcomed.

Thanks.
