Know Your Hacker

Whatever mental picture you may have formed about what a hacker looks like, hit delete now. The hackers of today aren't human beings. They're malignant virtual robots. These "malware bots" continually crawl the Internet like 24/7 burglars, probing for open windows.

Your site indeed might not contain anything worth stealing. But if you rent budget-priced shared hosting, you live inside a gated community. Your server hosts a bunch of other websites on one common partitioned hard drive.

The bot looks for a site that can be tricked into opening the gate. Then it cases the neighborhood for high-value targets. In no time every one of them will have been ransacked and a toxic gift dropped at each doorstep.

Open windows abound nowadays. Welcome to the dark side of the modular website revolution. Joomla, Wordpress and Drupal brought immensely powerful websites within range of customers with shallow pockets. These web development platforms act as the hub for a myriad of software extensions to add almost any function imaginable. But as much power as extensions pack, they bring risk in that they may contain open windows.

Then too, risk accumulates when millions of websites use the same basic operational infrastructure. If bots find an open window in the operating system of one website, it can be exploited against tens of thousands of other websites.

That's a big part of why the website system designers continually come out with new and improved versions. Each new version closes a security vulnerability. Hence the constant pressure for the website owner to update to the new version as soon as it comes out.

What's The Solution?

Although risk can't be completely eliminated, it can be mitigated almost to nil via a cloud-based firewall. The firewall vets and buffers queries to your website, fending off the malware bots.

Once upon a time firewalls were for obvious high-value targets like e-commerce websites. Today they are for everybody. SSL encryption ("secure socket layer") no longer will suffice on its own. The encrypted, cloud-based firewall is the ultimate answer.

Your host company probably will offer one or more firewalls as add-on services. Don't be limited to the solutions they advertise. There's a wide selection of vendors out there who can do this job.

Our preferred firewall vendor, based on long experience, is Sucuri. We use them ourselves, as do many customers. Service and performance are outstanding, and the cost is about $10 per month. Sucuri also excels at malware removal and will be your advocate if you get blacklisted by Google.

There are 10 basic proactive steps you can take to secure your website further. Sucuri firewall analyst Keir Desailly discusses them here. The article is written at an advanced level for webmasters, but tech-oriented civilians will be able to grok the gist.

Those of you who count on SEO to generate business, you are running a risk of ruining your Google ranking. Google has a giant vested interest in making their search engine a safe place. Their own bots check to make sure your site is secure. And they will often flag infections long before hosting providers.

The first sign will be a note appended to all your indexed pages: "Warning: This site may be hacked." If the mess isn't cleaned up promptly, all your pages will be deleted from the index. There's a good and fair process for having them restored to the index when your site is clean again, but none of this helps your long-term position.

At Javelin Communications, website security is a foundational part of the design/build process. Please be assured that website hardening will be available when you need it, fast. Contact us today to learn more.
