Attacks in this fast evolving internet world have evolved steadily overtime. One of the most disrupting attacks in the web world today is malware or malicious software which is injected into legitimate website files by the hackers. Malware is basically the software that is designed especially for damaging or disrupting a system. Due to this, unsuspecting websites suffer a lot of damage in terms of loss of revenue and reputation of the innocent website owners.
Over 9,500 websites are daily blacklisted by search engines like Yahoo, Google and Microsoft because of the presence of malware on them. Blacklisting is very damaging as no one is able to access the blacklisted site till the time website owners remove the malware code and send a request to the search engine to get themselves removed from the blacklist. Such stringent blacklisting procedures is followed by search engines as there is a high probability that a site infected with malware could infect its customers also.
This problem is growing exponentially as a number of new websites are being created each day due to inexpensive and easy methods available now-a-days to get online. Therefore, as companies use antivirus for protecting their PCs from viruses, similarly modern companies have now started investing in protecting their websites from malware.
Most existing malware solutions catch known viruses and malware that have already been identified and stored in signature databases. However, hackers know about these databases and so more advanced methods are required now-a-days as hackers now produce dynamic malware with latest web technologies. Thus, malware scanning software like StopTheHacker is now a prerequisite if you are a smart website owner as stopthehacker catches that malware also that's never seen before.
StopTheHacker is a suite of security technologies that has been designed for safeguarding a company's website. It offers a number of advantages, including:
