Case Study with BitNinja's Sister Company

When I joined the BitNinja team in 2016, I heard the story about how BitNinja was born. It is a sister company of one the leading Hungarian shared hosting businesses and firstly it was only an in-house project to eliminate the hackers and bots.

Are you tired of the never-ending malware infections? Would you like to get rid of the nightmare of the long hours spent troubleshooting? Do you still seem to get repeatedly infected regardless of how often you make malware removals? It’s enough of the reactive protection!

The Most Famous Vulnerabilities – Remote Code Execution (RCE)

If someone wants to use a server resource or take control of the server in some way or wants to steal data, then he does it via remote code execution vulnerability. What is Remote Code Execution? This vulnerability triggers in so many ways, but in most cases, it is possible via the following methods. •Untreated inputs •Untreated file uploads We talk about an untreated input when there is little validation on the server side or none at all.
