Over the past year Google has noticed a 180% increase in the number of sites getting hacked. While we are working hard to combat this hacked trend, there are steps you can take to protect your content on the web.

    Awesome. Thanks so much for sharing Justin. I know it's a growing problem!

    Think there should be a "How to Nuke all the Hackers" Hangout.
    They cause so much harm on so many levels!
