To secure your TYPO3 website on Hostinger against vulnerabilities, you can follow these steps:
- Keep TYPO3 and extensions up to date: Regularly update TYPO3 core and extensions to ensure they are running the latest, most secure versions. Enable automatic updates if available.
- Use strong passwords: Ensure that your TYPO3 backend login, database credentials, FTP, and SSH passwords are strong and unique. Use a mix of uppercase, lowercase, numbers, and special characters.
- Enable SSL/TLS: Install an SSL certificate on your website to enable HTTPS encryption. This protects data transmitted between your website and users, preventing interception.

- Use strong security extensions: Install and configure TYPO3 security extensions to provide additional protection against common vulnerabilities. Some popular extensions include Secure Site and Simple IP Ban.
- Apply necessary patches: Regularly check for security advisories related to TYPO3 and apply patches as soon as they become available. Stay informed about any security vulnerabilities and take the necessary steps to fix them.
- Implement security headers: Configure your web server to send security headers. This includes headers such as "X-Content-Type-Options", "X-Frame-Options", and "Content-Security-Policy" to prevent various types of attacks, including cross-site scripting (XSS) and clickjacking.
- Monitor website activity: Use monitoring tools or plugins to track and analyze website activity, including login attempts, file changes, and suspicious behavior. This helps you identify and respond to potential security threats promptly.
- Regularly scan for malware: Utilize security scanning tools to scan your TYPO3 website for malware and vulnerabilities. These tools can help identify and resolve any security issues before they are exploited by attackers.
