Because the signs of an attack aren’t always clear, many victims don’t even know they’ve been targeted. It’s crucial to know the signs and to stop malware in its tracks as early as you can. In this post, we’ll share insight on how to detect malware on your website and what steps to take after confirming an attack.

What Is Malware? Understanding the Basics of Website Malware

Malware has infected roughly a third of the world’s computers, costing companies across the globe trillions of dollars each year.

Don’t just pay attention to the man behind the curtain, tear the curtain down and burn it. That’s been the general sentiment among the InfoSec community on Twitter this past week in the wake of the discovery of multiple vulnerabilities intentionally built into the popular pipdig Power Pack (P3) plugin.
