We are often brought in to re-clean malware infected or otherwise hacked websites after other security companies have failed to get things fully cleaned up. Recently though we were brought in to deal with a high profile website (one where we were later contacted by the FBI during their investigation in to it) where not one, but two companies had failed to do anything meaningful to clean it up.

There is a nearly endless amount of bad security advice for websites, so someone has to try hard to make theirs stands out, but that is what something we happened to run across recently from a company named ENDURTECH did. Their post, https://endurtech.com/setting-proper-chmod-permissions-for-wordpress-wp-config-php-and-htaccess/, suggested that you should change the permissions on a couple of... Read More
