    2 of my friends got their SEO websites hacked and it ********ing sucks. It's also dangerous as you might lose SEO rankings.

    Any tips on how not to get hacked?

    Keep your scripts/cms up to date, and always keep fresh backups.

    If you manage a number of sites (dozens and up), it's not a matter of if, but when.

    Scripts up to date, backup atleast once a week, hard paswords and restricting access to vulnerable folders to only a selection of IPs.
