Drupal Sites Getting Hacked?!?!?

TC Drupal People,

I've had two Drupal sites running 7.43 and all modules that needed security updates have been updated. No red warning for updates. All FTP & user logins have very strong passwords that change a lot.

However, these sites still got hacked!

My question: Is there something I'm missing or suggestions on must update or better way to protect my Drupal sites?

I do have them monitored and cleaned for Malware, plus multiple back ups to restore from.

Please chime in if you have any feedback or advice for me (from a Drupal viewpoint or not).

Thank you,
Corey

GeoCode 2.0

There is a hack-a-thon going on this weekend dealing specifically with geodata. Here is an opportunity to give back to the community using your tech skills. I plan to participate and would love to see other Drupalers attend.

I'm proposed a project, which I'm hoping will give me the opportunity to learn about accessing and creating public API's.

Event is free, but space is limited (and running out).

Looking for able developer or small agency for a client we've outgrown

We have a client that we've outgrown, and we're trying to find someone else who can take them on. The client and the site were inherited from another vendor in the Twin Cities, and we were able to bring the site to a stable, working version. This client has been with us since January of 2014.

Big Night for Fire on the Bluff

I know that this is a little off-topic, but given the role that Barry Madore has played in the local (and international) Drupal Community and all the great pizza he made for us at Drupal Camp the last two years, I'd like to make sure that everyone is aware of a great opportunity to support Barry on his latest venture, Fire on the Bluff.

Here is a short snippet from his blog post: http://www.fireonthebluff.com/article/cookstp
