As of 2019, WordPress powers over 34% of the Internet, with a 60% market share of content management systems. That makes it a plentiful target for malicious users and would-be hackers.
Although WordPress’ active developer community and dedicated security team work tirelessly to find and patch security bugs in the core CMS as they come to light, the huge variety of themes and plugins available to bolt on to WordPress make keeping a tight ship all the more difficult. WordPress users introduce security holes into their WordPress websites without even realising, on a daily basis.
With my years of experience contributing to the field of security, I can offer penetration testing to test your WordPress website for common security holes, and WordPress ‘hack’ recovery and site clean-up services if things have gone awry.
Find the source
By finding where the infection got in to your website, I can immediately neutralise the attack vector and prevent re-infections from taking place while the clean-up operation happens.
Remove the infection
I thoroughly clean all traces of backdoors and malware from files and folders (plugins, themes, WordPress core files), posts, pages and other WordPress website media.
When all traces of the website infection are gone, WordPress core and all third party plugins and themes are upgraded to mitigate the risk of re-attack.
My work in the field of WordPress security has been referenced by numerous tech publications, including research into a UK-based WordPress theme provider who used their platform to compromise both their customers and execute DDoS attacks against competitors.

How Many Miles author Stephen Morrison had this to say about how I helped him clean up his WordPress blog:
I was close to giving up after 8 years as a blogger. No matter what I did or who I got to help me, the hacker was one step ahead. That is until I enlisted the help of Jem Turner who managed to rid my blog of hacks and give me the confidence to blog again.
