My site has been hacked

Hi,

Last night my website has been hacked. The hacker modify my index.php and replace it with mine.
Am I right to ask adice here or could you guys direct me where should I report this attack ?

What should I do to prevent such attack in the future ? Any help appreciated.

Thank you very much.

I generally advice people to …

  1. Always keep backup.
  2. Contact host to ensure there was no attack on their server.
  3. Avoid making use of nulled and not updated theme and plugin. This is a major cause of most problem.
  4. Avoid use of discontinued plugin
  5. Use Strong passphrase and protect login page with “Cloudflare Under Attack mode” to avoid brute force attempt
