In the last couple of weeks there has been a Linux Platform hack gathering speed which has already affected a couple of reputed Web Hosting companies in the industry. While there is no clarity on the exact method of the attacks, they seem to be targeting various plugins that might be part of the applications running on your Customers‚Äô websites.
Much like the Gumblar attacks around the same time last year, we suggest that you keep the Web Applications running on your websites up to date. This includes Wordpress installations, or any other CMS which needs regular updates.
Here are a few things that you can keep in mind:
- Always use strong passwords (changing them from time to time is a good idea)
- Using SFTP will also help in preventing these infections
- Scan your local system with a good AntiVirus and Malware remover to make sure the system is infection free
- Avoid 777 permissions on any file or folder on your server
On our part, you can rest assured that we are taking all measures necessary to avoid any such infection on our servers. We have various security mechanisms in place that block these malicious actions from taking shape and we have also implemented various automated and periodic scans which identify any such patterns and cut them out from the root.
Fortunately, we do not have any instances of such an attack on our servers yet, we will need you to be vigilant and proactive in taking all precautionary measures.
