New Generation Dashboard Is On The Way

It will be more customizable, quicker and will provide you more information. We have already redesigned the header and given a new style to it. In the upcoming weeks you will be able to observe more changes on the admin page. We are launching the new BitNinja dashboard (Security Console) step-by-step. First we upgrade the most used pages so we started with the Firewall section. The loading of the blacklist and whitelist is much faster than before and the searching became more simple and quicker. The next step in the dashboard (Security Console) adaptation will be the dash...

Let’s see the details of what happene...

2019 Highlights – A Great Year at BitNinja

As 2019 will be over soon, it’s time to stop for a while and look back on what happened this year. 2019 was a unique year at BitNinja (you’ll see on the results). We got closer to our mission – making the internet a safer place. However, we couldn’t have reached the successes mentioned below without our ninjastic partners. Many new features were inspired by the Ninja Community. Also, the continuous feedback that we are receiving from day to day about how BitNinja changed businesses’ life for the better is a huge motivation for us to keep working harder and harder every day. So, we’d l...

Satori IoT Botnet Stopped by BitNinja

Our Port Honeypot module proactively catches botnets very quickly, as botnets usually start to scan open ports, which is the first step of the attack cycle. We found an old IoT botnet that became active again. It strangely happened just 2 months after 21-year-old Kenneth Schuchman pleaded guilty to developing and deploying the Satori botnet. The Satori botnet The Satori malware family was discovered in December 2017 . It is a derivative of the famous Mirai botnet, however, the technique of leveraging default or weak passwords doesn’t seem as effective for hackers anymore. As users...

Teamwork makes the dream work: Sub-users and their roles

Not everyone uses the BitNinja Dashboard for the same reasons when doing their work. We know that. Which is why we have different sub-user roles built into our Dashboard. Why do you need sub-user roles? If you need your accountant to download your subscriptions’ invoices without sharing your BitNinja account's login details, and if you want your support crew to be able to check if an IP address is blocked or not without risking your account’s integrity, you just need an email address to make them an account that lets your staff do their job while you keep your parent user account’s crede...

Trace Hackers' IP Behind Cloudflare with The New Trusted Proxy Module

In the previous quarter, we announced a new beta module, the Trusted Proxy, which became some of our users’ favorite module: “The new Trusted Proxy feature simply blows the competition out of the water especially when you consider the price point at which are offering BitNinja.

Release note – A bunch of new features are available in agent 1.29.X and 1.30.0

Where are our tech ninjas? The first quarter of 2019 was quite stirring. We have also published several articles about our work.

They worked harder than ever...

Slack Integration - Create your own BitNinja alerts

Back in October, we collected your feedback about our upcoming chat integration. As 59% of you asked for notification options for Slack to ease your daily job, we started working on that soon and here we come with the result. We're happy to announce BitNinja's Slack integration!
