Website defacement is one of the biggest security challenges to any organization running its business online. The term "Web Defacement" refers to any unauthorized changes made to the appearance of either a single webpage, or an entire site. It is typically done by hackers who break into a web server and replace the content/script in the hosted website with their own, using techniques such as phishing, code injection and cross-site scripting. Insertion of potentially hazardous content, images, malicious code, or even deletion of content can inflict severe damage to your business reputation and reliability.
