How to avoid blog hacking problem???
Friends I am new in site ground. Now i would like to Know that how can i avoid blog site
hacking problem. Because I have already fall in problem to hack my site!!!
Please suggest me what should i do???
The first step and the most important step is to keep backup. Before you plan on making any changes, make sure you backup your entire DB. You can do this manually or use an available plugin. I recommend backup buddy which backs up your entire wordpress blog. Unlike free plugins which only backup your database, backup buddy exports your entire database with images, files and whatever you have in your blog’s content folder- Pretty sweeet!

and don't forget to update your blog regulary as soon as you see the update notice in your admin area. and keep your passwords hard to guess and safe. also install captcha module for admin login too.

Download plugins from trusted sites, original, and keep backup.
Definitely agree with most advice here - especially:
Keep a backup - backup buddy is good, but total backup is good too.
Update WP as soon as possible after a new release
Consider malware scanning plug ins. Most can detect problems as they are happening, and some can clean them up too.
The default wordpress login is admin and most hackers know that.
We should change this to something else that would be difficult to guess.
I suggest that you use strong passwords which include upper/lower keys, numbers and symbols.

Last but not least, install a Wordpress plugin that limits the amount of login attempts per user IP per certain amount of time. This will greatly reduce your exposure.
The thing i do on my every blog is i install this plugin: Better WP Security. After that i also do most of the thing thats this plugin tells me to do - like change login path from /wp-login.php to /login (or whatever you feel is best for you). Of course that is not all, i also set up bad logins attempts to max 2. I never do mistakes while login on my own sites so thats what tells me that someone is trying to hack my login/password. Of course you have to change your admin name. DONT EVER MAKE "ADMIN" account on your blog/forum/website or whatever. Its easiest way to hack your account and do alot of troubles.
You can see the list of wordpress security plugin at here http://djdesignerlab.com/2013/01/03/...og-or-website/
(@admin: sorry to put link on my first post)
The best way is to use Better Security Plugin.. there is a lot of plugins out there but this one is the best in my point of view... plus you have to secure your htaccess file and wp-config... avoid using the wp-content.. Rename it to something else.. in fact this plugin will guide you to achieve all that...
Plus follow the siteground guide about this.. its very useful.
I know you've been suggested by various valuable "must do" advices, you also need to start from your theme itself, use "TAC" to check backlinks on your theme, especially if its free or have downloaded it from somewhere like * disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word ** disabled word * then you need to be careful. also, I use "limit login" plugin which is another great tool to mitigate dictionary attacks. hope this helps

I would recommend you to install few security plugins, and others like Stealth Login and limit login attempts, etc.
Those are quite helpful!
limit login is just one of the best security plugins, but the best protection is combination of everything noted above

Hope the suggestion is useful for you.
There is not much to add after the last comment, very useful tips!
Thanks to all for valuable tips. I am also new to this forum however I do have a reasonable amount of WP experience. Some of these tips really opened my eyes to potential problems that I have not yet encountered. Thanks to all!!!
Please, check out the security webinar we've organized recently on WordPress security. I am sure that you will find useful information in it
