    Several of my sites were hacked (somehow my .htaccess file was affected, and was redirecting to .ru sites).
    Although its no big deal to the site itself, i was able to fix it within minutes by replacing it with my 'clean' .htaccess file.

    What's the best and easiest way to protect WP sites? I have read about plugins that help secure them, do they work well?
    Whats your way of securing your sites? Thx

    I rarely updates plugins, platform, themes unless I REALLY have to. (Such as plugin wont work if i dont update).
    I am afraid that by updating the 'theme' for example, it will cause some css issue that I customized awhile ago.
    Any suggestions on this?
