I need some urgent advice.
My biggest website, with over 2 million members, has just been hacked. To the nth degree. They somehow gained access to the root, they wiped the lot.
I'm still not clear how, but they then gained access to the backup servers and completely wiped them too. We're trying to find out if there's anything we can salvage.
The system was custom coded and was constantly developed, we've lost 10's if not hundreds of thousands of dollars of work and obviously the lost revenues.
I have a passionate team, who don't want to give up. I personally feel demoralised and don't really want to start again, as I can't even begin to imagine how.
If nothing can be salvaged and we did start over, what would be the best way to start over? We had hundreds of thousands of pages, my head is just completely fuzzy.
Any advice from an SEO perspective would be great.
Thanks a lot.
