Below we will discuss the ever-evolving threats to today’s Internet. These are dangers that our team can help fix and protect you from in the future.
What is Malware?
The term Malware is short for malicious software or code that is created to do harm to a computer, sever or website. Malware can come in the form of different entities including viruses, trojans, spyware, worms, ransonware, adware and botnets. Cyber-criminals and hackers are consistently trying to access data and are coming up with creative ways to disguise malware in the form of email attachments, advertisements, photos, downloadable files, documents, web apps and more.
Pay close attention to the operating speed of your website and computer as Malware is known to slow operating speeds. If you see unexpected messages, icons or pop-ups come across your website, it’s time to contact Dependable Website Management before your website gets blacklisted by Google.
What does it mean to get blacklisted by Google?
Google removes over 10,000 websites every day from its index. This practice is called blacklisting, or blocking contaminated or dangerous websites so that the threat does not spread. Google blacklisting is temporary, as long as the threat is eventually removed. Dependable Website Management knows website downtime equals money and time lost, so our reliable team is constantly monitoring for suspicious activity and implementing the best security practices to keep your site up and running. If you are blacklisted, call us today so we can submit removal requests to Google on your behalf.
What is phishing?
Phishing is a scam attempt where cybercriminals impersonate a genuine company or person and attempt to steal personal information or login credentials. Hackers can even take over a website using domain name system (DNS) cache poisoning and change the IP address your website, thus redirecting users automatically to a harmful website. One way Dependable Website Management protects against phishing is monitoring for failed login requests, detecting downtime, scanning incoming traffic, updating software and more.
What is a DDoS attack?
DDoS stands for Distributed Denial of Service. Once a hacker compromises a computer with Malware, it turns into a bot and provide an access point for hackers to their computer. Hackers then send orders to the compromised machines (called botnets) to conduct a coordinated, well-timed attack on a specific target, usually a website. This assault is known as a DDoS attack and it can cause severe ramifications to a website’s performance, bandwidth, and infrastructure leaving it vulnerable and inaccessible.
How do I repair a hacked website?
If your website has been hacked, the first thing to do is change your passwords and check your local computer for Malware. The second thing you need to do is contact Dependable Website Management to remove the malicious code and add necessary monitoring and security to your website to get it back up and running.
