Every website is a target for malware attacks. If you follow the news you will know that everything from mom n’ pop sites, educational institutions, government sites, Fortune 500 companies, even famous search engines fall victim to drive-by downloads, social engineering attacks and a myriad of badware.
The good news is that you can prevent, detect and recover from a malware attack on your site. Two friends of WOT are a good place to start.
StopTheHacker offers services that help you prevent, detect and recover from a website intrusion. Their specialty is detecting code injections; a new tactic cybercriminals use to introduce malicious code in compromised websites.
StopTheHacker is a collaboration fostered through the Bourns College of Engineering at the University of California, Riverside. They are a recipient of the National Science Foundation award for technological novelty and impact.
Website owners can search for reports on their site using the Badware Website Clearinghouse. And with the help of the BadwareBusters community, you can get advice on cleaning and securing your site.
