Today we speak about how to protect your site or blog from dealers, hackers, trolls and other evil out there.

I found three awesome articles that gives a ton of tips and tricks.

1) Socialmouths

“It might sound technical and a boring read but, I promise to give you a light read and real advice that you, the non-programmer individual, can actually follow and implement.

Why did I choose this topic you ask, if I think it’s tedious… well, I had SocialMouths hacked a while back and more recently had a couple of friends go through similar experiences. It’s no fun. In my case, my site went completely blank, the database was disconnected and a few other nasty things that made it very hard to fix.

The funny thing is that it wasn’t even my fault, it was that famous Network Solutions hack attack a few months ago. Even tough NetSol got the site back up fairly quickly, the site kept crashing. The worst part was not fixing the issues, they finally did, the worst part was that my site was labeled as vulnerable. The site was now considered target of more attacks and it could cause harm to others as well.

When this happens they put a warning on the site, when somebody follows a link to your site or actually type the URL, they first get a nice and very discrete (I’m being sarcastic by the way… just in case) red screen to advice your visitor they’re entering hell.”

Jedes System ist nur so gut wie die Sicherheitsmaßnahmen, die es beschützen.

Das trifft heutzutage leider auch mehr und mehr auf Webseiten, Communitys und andere Internetaktivitäten zu. Ob Trojaner, Viren oder gezielte Angriffe gegen Seiten, mitunter kann einem die Lust schon etwas vergehen, wenn man liest, wo wieder Daten ausspioniert und gestohlen wurden.

“Na meine private Seite interessiert doch keinen….”

Diesem Irrtum erliegen viele und kümmern sich nur sekundär oder gleich gar nicht um die Sicherheit ihrer Seite. Dabei spielt es keine Rolle ob man ein reines HTML-Konstrukt besitzt oder CMS-Systeme wie Typo 3, Joomla oder WordPress nutzt. Die Gefahr ist für alle gleich groß. Geht es nicht vorrangig um Datenklau, so werden viele Systeme und Seiten genutzt, um als manipulierte Seiten Auffanglager für gefakte Bankseiten u.ä. herzuhalten oder Spam in rauen Mengen zu versenden. Dafür ist den Angreifern jede Seite recht und viel zu oft wird es ihnen besonders leicht gemacht.
