Why Website Reinfections Happen

We all know someone who’s been in a difficult position following a security breach. They are rushing to assess the damage, while simultaneously repairing website functionality to limit the compromise. It’s a stressful situation, especially if you’ve had to deal with a compromise more than once.

While it may seem like you’ve been singled out and targeted by some menacing hackers, most of the time that isn’t the case.
