Release Note - New Way of Malware Detection

It’s been a while since we wrote a release note so there are plenty of new upgrades, features and fixes to tell you about. Our tech ninjas worked harder than ever. We invented a brand new way of malware detection and raised the SenseLog performance hugely.  In the past months we also: created a new licensing system, made a new Captcha design, added a service detector, upgraded the HaProxy, and of course we fixed bugs and added plenty of other features which made the UI/UX much better. Let’s see the details of what happene...

BitNinja Agent v2.6.4 Bug - Update

Eniko Toth
On 3 Dec 2019, we released a new agent version (2.6.4) to fix the cert update bug in the SSL Terminating module, but unfortunately, some dependencies caused serious issues (kernel panic, redirection problems) on some CentOS 6 and CentOS 7 servers. It affected only 2% of the BitNinja protected servers because it occurred only in the case of a special kernel version. The agent version was reverted and released as 2.6.6. We started a bulk update on the servers and we are in contact with the affected users.  Just to make sure that the right version of BitNinja is running on your server,...

New Malware Monitoring Tool – Auditd is Replacing Inotify

It takes 99.9% less memory usage and 99.9% less time to set up… Unbelievable, but it’s possible with the new malware monitoring tool. While BitNinja believes in the power of prevention and our proactive modules are very robust, we also want to provide an all-in-one server security service. We know that malware infections are a pain point for every server owner because they have very visible signs. “There is always room for improvement.” So, we won’t lie to you. Many old and new users ask our help to clean malware from their servers. That’s the reason why we dedicated several projects to...

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.

However, we’d like to show you a new botnet, that we haven’t talked about yet. This is the Hexa botnet.
