News, projects, tips, observations, and general musings
Website hacking has become more and more frequent and sophisticated in recent years. We’ve developed some custom tools to help us discover all the files installed by hackers and get rid of them.
One addition to our bag of tricks is a file tracker that runs in the background, recording any executable files that have been added to or deleted from a web server, and also any that have been altered. When any change is noticed, an email gets sent to us so we can investigate and remediate hacking before anything terrible happens. We’ve been rolling out this feature to our clients’ websites over time.
