Also, I know that you want to make sure about the outcome...

(D)DoS attack - How does it work and how will BitNinja stop it?

100% server uptime... Every hosting company is dreaming about it as nowadays when there are countless service providers, customers will choose the one which grants reliability. What happens when a website is inaccessible? It’s always painful for the website owner, the visitors and for the hosting company.

As a server owner, have you ever had an experience where one or more of the websites hosted by you were reported as a phishing website? Another common issue to get blacklisted on different lists or getting abuse reports which inform you that your servers are attacking other nodes. Perhaps this fact that we’re telling you isn’t new, which is the source of the outgoing attacks is an infection. A lot of hosting providers are frightened when they hear the word „malware,” and they have the reason for getting afraid. Malware is in the spotlight ELK Cloner was the very first malware (previou...

Defense Robot – The breakthrough innovation for the cybersecurity market

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 old way What would usually happen when a server became infected? People had to buy special security tools, which had really high prices to find malware. If it succeeded, the sysadmins had to spend plenty of hours (or in worse cases several days) to remove the malware. The other option was to pay for someone to do t...

Botnet renewal – Here is the February botnet

Do you remember the new version of the Hello Peppa botnet? At the end of 2018, it was welcomed into 2019 slightly early, and the January botnet started to spread. Well, it wouldn’t be funny, if the botnet would still send the „J4nur4ry” in the Post Data when we are already over January… So, here is the February botnet! Despite the January botnet, this one was accurate and started on 1st February. The pike was on the next day, as you can see it from the chart below.   After that, it looked like it moved back, but on 17th Feb there was another pike. Let’s look closely to o...

Case Study - How BitNinja Supports Dreamscape Networks’ Mission
