How to protect against hackers...part one...
Do you own a blog?
Word press is an easy target for hackers! Don't install it!
Instead, hire a developer to secure your code.
If you not got cash for a developer fear not!
Follow these simple tips of security...
1. Sanitize input.
If you have an ≪input type="text"name="in"/≫
Box on site, with submit...you need to use strlen($in,256), to restrict against a buffet overflow attack.
2. Htmlspecialchars() to stop xss attacks
Remember to access your site on a burner line. A disposable mobile will show signs of compromise, such as letters being eaten when typing a message. This is a symptom of a keylogger. Or the cursor not keeping up with your typerate. Another sign of compromise.
Listen to people on public transport to see if any confidential posts were compromised.
How to fix?
Buy a new burner!
