    Need help with rephrasing

    Dear teachers,
    please help.

    I have a sentence

    "Our professional team will detect and remove malicious software and viruses from your website and restore your website to its original state in case it has been hacked.

    Can I change "in case it has been hacked" by "if once being hacked"

    So, I'll have "Our professional team will detect and remove malicious software and viruses from your website and restore your website to its original state if once being hacked"

    Is it clear that this phrase refer to "website" not to "professional team"? Or I can't write like this?

    Thank you!

    No. In case it has been hacked is perfect. Don't try to improve upon it.

    In addition, "if once being hacked" is not a correct English phrase in any context.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
