This talk offers an insight into the methods we use at Conetix to determine the root cause of a hacked website. This will include examples of some of the more common exploits seen and what they look like in the log files.
Determining the root cause is important in order to ensure you’ve blocked the hacker from returning. Finally, some tips in order to greatly reduce the chances of the site being hacked in the first place. Developers through to businesses will hopefully see not only the importance of keeping a secure site, but what needs to be done when it’s too late.
