• How StopTheHacker Works to Help Prevent Attacks on Websites

    Current research shows that over 85% of all malware comes from the web. This number is so high because it is estimated, by the same report, that more than 30,000 websites are infected with some sort of malware every day. And this number is not limited to malicious sites set up by cybercriminals, a majority of these sites are legitimate sites that have had malicious code injected into them through any number of vulnerabilities.

    Luckily, there is a cost effective solution to help you protect your web site from falling victim to attack. That solution is Stop the Hacker. Stop the Hacker, quite simply, defends its customers’ web sites against malware and vulnerabilities through monitoring and assessments.

    To begin with, Stop the Hacker scans each and every page on your web site for known viruses and malware that may have been injected into your site. If something is found, then you are notified immediately and provided with information on what steps you need to take next to clean the infected files from your site if you wish to handle the cleanup yourself. If you aren’t up to the task of manually cleaning any infected files, then you can let Stop the Hacker handle this for you with its automatic cleanup. You don’t have to know how to program, develop web sites or even know the first thing about security. StopTheHacker will do all the work for you without you ever having to touch a line of code. And Stop the Hacker doesn’t stop there. It automatically, and continually, scans each page on your web site for any anomalies that may be a malware infection on your website. You can decide if you want these scans to occur weekly, daily, hourly or continuously depending upon the service package you choose.

    Yet what makes Stop the Hacker’s service so unique is its Artificial Intelligence engine. While most web site protection services rely solely on definitions and signature files to fight malware and vulnerabilities, Stop the Hacker’s advanced AI engine not only monitors for new strains of malware, but identifies attacks by learning what patterns they take, alerting you to a possible infection or vulnerability before something happens.

    In addition to protecting your web site against malware threats, Stop the Hacker also performs a vulnerability assessment of your web site looking for over 35,000 vulnerabilities on your servers, website or third-party web applications, including:

      • WordPress
      • Drupal
      • Django
      • OpenCMS
      • Joomla
      • Ruby on Rails
      • And many more
