Protect Against Web Defacement Attacks

Be the first to know of any web defacement attacks. Safeguard your brand reputation and customer trust with WebOrion. 

What is Web Defacement?  

Web defacement is a common type of cyber-attack where hackers compromise the web server and replace a customer’s website with the hacker’s own logo, message or graphic. These attacks often occur through exploitation of vulnerabilities in web servers or stolen user credentials to access the website’s backend. 

A defaced website can lead to data and financial losses and, ultimately, reputation losses. 

Consequences of Web Defacement

Loss of Credibility

Defacement undermines a website’s trustworthiness, affecting its reputation. 

Financial Loss

Businesses may suffer financial losses due to decreased customer trust and potential disruptions in online transactions. 

User Trust Erosion

Defacement erodes user confidence, leading to declining website traffic and engagement. 

Operational Disruptions

Defacement can disrupt normal website operations, causing downtime and affecting critical business processes. 

How can WebOrion Help?

To prevent the negative consequences of web defacement, it is important to put in place a Web Application Firewall (WAF) as your first line of defense, regularly monitor your website for any unauthorized change, and have a response plan in the event of a hack.
