Analysing a hacking attack   Home

One of the biggest problems working online is the number of people who seem to have a lot of time to create and upload malware onto a website. These are people the webmaster has never met or even interacted with, yet they seem determined to defame the webmaster in the worst possible manner. Not only will they be tracking all online activity and stealing passwords, they will track the offline activities of the webmaster.

The moment they think that a website is vulnerable, they will upload the most malicious scripts possible in multiple folders. The script was used to send spam emails. It was a very well planned hacking attack, the hackers took a lot of effort to make it appear that the webmaster was responsible for the problem. Fortunately, the web hosting company suspended the account immediately. It is very obvious that they know everything about the webmaster, but it is very difficult for the webmaster to take action against them.
