Avoid Multi-Site Hacking – Part 1

avoid-part1
Running shared or VPS servers has risks. When one site is hacked, neighbors succumb shortly after. In this two-part article, I'll explain the risks in detail and what you can do to mitigate them. Shared hosting and VPS servers allow you to host several sites within one user account. If you're a webmaster, a web studio, an Internet agency, or a business owner, you do this not only for convenience but also to save money, as it is cheaper than buying separate accounts for each site. But there's a problem. Multi-site accounts are vulnerable to hacking and the subsequent infection of the entire hosting account. Often, there are dozens of "patients" (tenants) on the same site who urgently need tre...

Imunify360: The only option for all-around proactive web security

imunify-only-solution
As a hosting provider, you have choices in the security space. We at CloudLinux know them and we know the hosting market well. Over the years, we've met with and spoken to a lot of hosting providers, to understand their needs, and to deliver solutions specifically for them. Naturally, we looked at the other leading security solutions to see how they compared to Imunify360 . Here's what we found. One license covers all sites on the server If you own a server, you only need one Imunify360 license for all the sites hosted on it. As a hosting provider, you have the freedom to up-sell to site owners or include it as part of their package. Other solutions charge per hosted site , not per server. N...

Why every month should be National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

ncsam
This month, October 2018, in the US it is the 15th National Cybersecurity Awareness Month . Another month, another 'awareness' . Does this suppose that all the other 11 months we should be less aware? Do hackers make a special effort to be nicer in October? Do they leave love letters on your server instead of malware? Does it help if you live on Tokelau*? No. EVERY month is cybersecurity awareness month, and every week and every day and every second of every day, everywhere. Because cyber attacks are automated. Hackers are using scripts and scalable tools to do the grunt work, the same way you make scripts to automate tedious tasks on your servers. Here's a recipe for success this cybersecur...

How Proactive Defense works: watch the webinar recording to learn why it is so effective in stopping malware

layers
Firewalls and malware scanners focus on protecting against known attacks, but how do you protect against new security threats? With Proactive Defense in Imunify360 . It proactively stops malware from attacking your websites and servers. It intercepts all activity in real time, analyzes the behavior of PHP scripts, and then stops any known or unknown malicious codes from being executed. Proactive Defense is very effective because it analyzes what PHP scripts do rather than what is actually in the code or file.  Here you will learn how Proactive Defense works and how it stops even the malware that scanners are unable to detect.  View the recorded webinar here.

How to stop playing Whack-A-Mole with malware and actually protect servers from attacks

whack
​ Software vulnerabilities are constantly being exploited and monetized, and organized crime now consist of large development teams with substantial budgets. It has become a profitable industry that has seen rapid growth, fueled by ransomware schemes and cryptomining exploits, all without dire consequences. Malware is used by attackers to steal data, bypass access controls, remotely execute files, modify system configurations, and much more.  Web applications, such as WordPress and its plugins, are especially appealing to attackers as they are widely used and easily exploited, but Imunify360 -- with the newly released Proactive Defense -- can protect those applications against both...
