Anyone who pays attention to current events, from Yahoo! to the Democratic National Committee, knows the topic of 2016 and 2017 is cybersecurity. However, hackers are not just interested in attacking governments and large corporations. They will target any size website or business, exploiting common vulnerabilities with automated attacks. Therefore, while you may think your website is not worth their time, small business websites are bombarded daily.
Many hackers want to use your site so they can hide and spread malware, and the majority of attacks are not for the purpose of stealing your data or damaging your website. Instead, the goal of many hackers is exploiting your server to send spam email or as a web server for illegal files. These hackers use automated scripts, scouring the Internet in an attempt to exploit the known website security issues of commonly used software.Add a comment
