Yes, ‘Hacking’ is the scariest word when it comes to people who operate business online. There comes the important question - what exactly is hacking. In simple terms, Hacking is the process of exploiting vulnerability of a website and thereby establishing backdoor access to the site. Hacker or intruder can then utilize the identified vulnerability and make partial or complete defacement of the website. Once the hacker is able to gain control of your website in the way he wanted, he can then start killing your website by defacing it, modifying original website files or by injecting malicious scripts for later exploitations for further destruction. A defaced website can never serve its original purpose, rather it will negatively effect on your business.
