Suspect BitNinja behind increased server load?

As you know, providing all-in-one server security, BitNinja protects 3000+ Linux web servers worldwide, capturing 100 million incidents a month and keeping 1.7 million suspicious IP addresses in its blocklists to protect you and your customers. Mixing that up with custom infrastructures, configurations, and software in each leads to high load problems sometimes. Despite the best intentions - we always endeavor for the best solutions and we test our novelties constantly before and after each and every release -, these things happen. Most of them are temporary and everything falls back to nor...

Meltdown and Spectre attacks

A new class of side-channel attacks have been appeared, which exploit the following CPU vulnerabilities: CVE-2017-5715 : branch target injection CVE-2017-5753 : bounds check bypass CVE-2017-5754 : rogue data cache load Meltdown and Spectre rely on them and allow the hackers to read the memory content of other programs, it means they can access the stored sensitive data like passwords, photos, emails, secret documents, etc. The original coordinated disclosure date of this issue was planned for January 9, but the issue became public 6 days earlier....

Castle Vs Airport Model in security

Apart from changing the way we live, this virtual connectivity has exposed us to an array of attacks. Cyber risks are a growing concern in virtually every aspect of our lives. The integration of technology into our everyday tasks has paved way for more efficient work performance yet left us vulnerable to many cyber-attacks.  To combat the situation, easy-to-use server security tool was introduced into the equation with BitNinja being one of the top contenders.  With more and more malicious programs and hackers trying to penetrate systems on a daily basis via the use of latest tech...

High Availability

High Availability

In computer science, the term of availability is used to describe the period of time when a service is available. High availability is a quality of a system that assures high-level performance for a given period of time. The main goal of high availability is to eliminate the Single Point of Failures (SPoF) in your infrastructure. To eliminate SPoF, each layer of your stack must be prepared for redundancy. Be aware, redundancy alone cannot guarantee high availability. A mechanism must detect the failures and take action when one of your components of the stack becomes unavailable....

1.16.1 Version-645% performance improvement for SenseLog

This week we released a new version of BitNinja, which contains many significant performance improvements. But what are the changes exactly? We limited the SS usage of our Outbound WAF module. It will only use SS if a malicious request is caught. Its result will be a significant drop in BitNinja's CPU usage. Our SenseLog module has gone under serious optimization. From now on, it only scans logs stored from the last day.This way we can eliminate its slow loading and operation. Great news, this development increased its performance with 645%. Brilliant, isn't it? Multilingual texts...
