At SiteLock we review websites for malware every day, and every month we clean over 50,000 malware infected websites. We find thousands of security flaws daily and protect our customers from sophisticated attacks. Regardless of the issue, we would not be able to secure all 50,000 sites without the help of our amazing Support Team.
If you’ve ever visited a website only to be greeted by a red screen warning you about a malware infection, you’ve found a blacklisted site. Search engines do their part to protect users everywhere from malware and cybercrime through a process known as “blacklisting.” While this can be helpful, it is not the most reliable way to look for malware. We’ll discuss what blacklisting does and does not do, as well as the most effective ways to know if a website is infected with malware.
Brett Matthews manages over 125 websites through his company, Square 1 Designs. He provides website design, programming, and maintenance at an affordable price for his clients.
When he had just a few clients, he was able to clean malware and resolve cyberattacks himself. This worked well until one day, a customer experienced a cyberattack while Brett was on his honeymoon! His romantic getaway was interrupted as he spent seven hours removing the malware manually.
Brett realized that he needed a better solution for the sake of his business and his clients. Listen as he recalls his SiteLock experience:
As high-profile data breaches, such as Equifax, continue to dominate headlines, the topic of cybersecurity–or lack thereof–has commanded greater attention. The word ‘cybersecurity’ has become the media’s latest buzzword…and for good reason. New research reveals that websites experience 63 attacks per day, per website on average–this is an upsurge from the reported 22 attacks per day in 2016.
It has become clear that regardless of a company’s size or industry, data breaches are inevitable. That said, it’s important to fully understand what cybersecurity is, as well as the different types of cybersecurity, so you can protect your business, personal information, and stay informed with what’s happening in the industry.
We are excited to share that SiteLock has been named to the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing for the second year in a row! Designed to analyze and test applications for security vulnerabilities, application security testing (AST) is growing faster than any other security market, according to Gartner.
It can come as quite a surprise when a site owner is notified that their site has been compromised with malware. After the shock wears off, and the immediate impact understood, it’s important to take stock of what has actually happened behind the scenes and then clean it up. The best advice anyone can give you is to make frequent, downloaded backups of your site in the event something happens to the live version so that the clean backup can replace the live, hacked version.
But what if there is no clean, viable backup available? In a world where websites have hundreds, if not thousands of files, how can any one person go about cleaning out an infection in just a small number of those files?
Retail therapy is the act of shopping with the primary purpose to improve the buyer’s mood. This form of “therapy” is practiced among many consumers, with more than half of Americans admitting to making a purchase as a way to lift their spirits. As therapeutic as shopping can be, it also raises fear among many consumers – especially around the holiday season. With websites, including eCommerce sites, experiencing 22 cyberattacks per day on average, shoppers have good reason to be concerned.
Searching for content within a database can be a little trickier than searching files, but the options are pretty similar. Following up on last week’s blog titled, “How to Look for Malware in your Website Files” we talk about how to look for malware in databases and what types of things you should be looking for.
