So far on
, we have shared
some tips on detection and prevention. Now that you are able to detect hack
attack, we would like to introduce some common hacking techniques and guides on
how to fix them!
Fixing the Cloaked Keywords and Links Hack
The cloaked keywords and link hack automatically creates many pages with
nonsensical sentences, links, and images. These pages sometimes contain basic
template elements from the original site, so at first glance, the pages might
look like normal parts of the target site until you read the content. In this
type of attack, hackers usually use cloaking techniques to hide the malicious
content and make the injected page appear as part of the original site or a 404
the Gibberish Hack
The gibberish hack automatically creates many pages with nonsensical sentences
filled with keywords on the target site. Hackers do this so the hacked pages
show up in Google Search. Then, when people try to visit these pages, they'll be
redirected to an unrelated page, like a porn site for example.
the Japanese Keywords Hack
The Japanese keywords hack typically creates new pages with Japanese text on
the target site in randomly generated directory names. These pages are monetized
using affiliate links to stores selling fake brand merchandise and then shown in
Google search. Sometimes the accounts of the hackers get added in Search Console
as site owners.
