Keeping the server safe
We do an absolute ton of stuff to keep all the server safe and secure including
making sure that it is up to date, monitoring all sites at all times,
as well as monitoring for DoS attacks.
If we so much as detect an attempt at a DoS attack we will act accordingly,
for example, we have already got a script that alerts us of DoS attacks
which will allow us to block the IP address it comes from quickly.
What we do to keep sites secure
All websites hosted by us are in the same shared Apache-accessible directory.
This means that in theory, all websites can access content from each other.
This is actually not a problem as we maintain the code base for all websites to
ensure that they are all independent and because we don't allow third-parties
access to the code, no website would even access another site by design.
The weakest link scenario
Security for login systems is only as secure as the weakest link. That means that
if John Smith has a login as below:
A hacker could brute-force attack this site and, eventually, guess the username
and password. Let's assume now that John Smith is an admin for the website. Now
the hacker also can be considered as an admin.
The way to avoid this is to ensure that everyone has a secure password that adheres to
the strong password standards.
