Joomla Site Hackers - a growing global problem! Hackers attacking Joomla Sites is becoming a growing problem around the globe. Joomla sites fall victim because of vulnerabilities that allow hackers access. Once they have access, they may do some or all of the following things to your site:
Commit fraud and theft on others by turning your Joomla site into a "phishing" site.
Your site can be used to send spam emails to millions of others.
Jeopardize customer relationships by putting malware code on your Joomla site which then install harmful viruses on your customers computers.
Your webserver where your Joomla site resides can be used to hack into other servers.
and much more!

My sites were hacked on July 22nd and Bluehost shut them all down till I could get them cleaned. It couldn't happen at a worse time. I didn't have the time, money or patience to deal with any of it, so I let them sit dead for 6 weeks. I wasn't happy with the company Bluehost recommended to fix them, so I spent that time looking around for other solutions.
That brought me to computer-geek. I spent time looking through everything and must have read nearly 100 testimonials. I was sold, but still didn't feel like dealing with my sites.
When I finally contacted CG, I worked with Rich Agnew to get everything going. Loved working with him. He was patient, explained things well and within minutes of sending him a startup fee he was working on the sites. Within 24 hours everything was back up and running again.
25 years ago I walked away from computer consulting. I know what a chore it can be both fixing things and working with customers to get that done. Might be why I just let things sit for 6 weeks, didn't feel like reliving any of that.
Working with Rich got rid of all the hesitancy I had. If something ever goes wrong again, the only thing that would stop me from calling CG immediately would be cash flow. I'll call them ASAP once that is resolved. If my sites ever progress from hobby sites to money makers, I'll be contacting CG to see what else they can do.
I highly recommend anyone reading this that needs help to do the same.

We have an e-commerce website that was hijacked for ransomware and we had nowhere to go, I got a recommendation from an acquaintance to check out computer-geek and we are so glad we did. I contacted Rich on a Saturday and got a response within minutes. He helped us figure out our problems and helped us get control back of our site. We now use him for our hosting and some web development needs also. Rich has been helpful with walking us through the process the entire way. Very pleased and can recommend him to anyone.

Several years back I was informed by a client that they couldn't access my website. After countless days I was able to get a call back from my hosting and web page design company. The company got it back up but the content of the site was messed up. After weeks of no response, I contacted Computer Geek on a Sunday to leave a message for a return call on Monday. 10 minutes later to my surprise I had a return phone call from Rich at the Geek. By the following day my website was back to normal. As soon as I could I had the Geeks do my hosting and have recently had them build me a new website. Rich and his crew have been very professional, have always answered any questions I have had and are priced reasonably. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is having website issues or needs a face lift on their existing one.

"The professionalism and expertise which I experienced from Rich Agnew at The Computer Geek is streets ahead of any other service provider. When we were hit with a virus we were at our wits end but within minutes they had sorted us out. We were amazed at their skill and how quickly they had us up and running again. With something as important as your website, you definitely want a pro dealing with any issue and The Computer Geek fills the bill. I really appreciated Rich's personality too in that he was patient with me (a complete nitwit with computers), trustworthy with my website, and in general someone who really knew what he was doing. I felt tremendous relief leaving my problem in his hands and knowing that they are available for the next year gives me such peace of mind. Thank you Rich and The Computer Geek for your tremendous unequaled service. You truly are an angel in disguise."

Thanks so much for fixing our site, making it secure, and tweaking it so quickly. And a HUGE thank you for being the anti-GoDaddy and being so accessible, responsive, knowledgeable, and proactive. That's exactly what I was looking for in a hosting/tech support provider!
Rich and his team at Computer Geek are awesome! They fixed my virus infected website extremely fast (just a day!) and everything turned out great. I will definitely use them again the next time I'm in need of tech help. Thanks guys!
