Blacklist and Reputation Monitoring
Blacklist Monitoring is a comprehensive daily check on the status of your website on Google’s Safe Browsing List and other search engines including Yahoo, and Bing; malware blacklists like Malware Patrol and Malware URL; DNS Blacklists; phishing blacklists like PhishTank; spam blacklists like SpamCop; and many more. StopTheHacker will automatically notify you if your website ends up on a blacklist and help you to remove your site from the search engine blacklist.

What happens when websites get blacklisted?
Why do websites get on a blacklist?
Malicious hackers and automated bots will infect the websites with malicious computer code, e.g. web-malware. In order to protect web surfers, security companies, search engines, browser manufacturers will prevent users from visiting these compromised sites. Websites may also land on a blacklist for a number of other reasons. Some of these reasons stem from the fact that websites that get hacked are often used to launch spam and phishing campaigns, and are used to send out emails to internet users trying to convince them to visit a fake banking site, buy pharmaceutical drugs, etc.
How do sites get hacked?
Websites can get hacked and compromised in many ways. Some of the primary reasons include.
Poor choice of passwords (Brute Force attacks)
A lot of website owners use simple passwords. Consider the fact that in a large scale password analysis study in 2011, 123456 was found to be one of the most common passwords used. To help prevent being hacked, user login credentials should include non trivial information such as av21bx instead of Alex.
Insecure FTP connections, password sniffing
A plethora of infections can be injected into a website by the attacker using the login credentials to connect to a site via FTP. These login credentials are sniffed by a silent Trojan or rootkit that has been embedded on a computer of a website administrator. Once the login credentials are obtained, they are passed on automatically to an IRC chat room where a master controller accesses the website and starts to infect the website with web-malware.
A lot of websites use web 2.0 functionality to primarily iterate with their users. This functionality can be in the form of letting users’ blog or post comments, sign up for newsletters, fill out a support form, a live chat session and much more. These are all avenues for a malicious hacker to inject malicious code into a website.
Third party add-ons
A growing trend is the use of third party add-ons into websites to provide more interesting functionality on a site, such as dynamic IP geo-location and image resizing. These third party pieces of code may harbor vulnerabilities that the original website owner may not even be aware of.
Some malware is specific to Internet Explorer, can you detect it?
Yes, we can detect malware that only triggers when a user browses a site using Internet Explorer. We also use various IP addresses to probe a single website. Additionally, we check for malware that triggers when a user visits search engine web pages like Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.
My site has a Trustmark, am I safe?
No. Several companies sell trust marks. Some trust marks simply prove that you are a legitimate business, or that you will respect a user’s private data. Most trust marks are not related to the security of a website.
My site has a SSL certificate, I can see a padlock sign, am I immune?
No. SSL certificates have nothing to do with protection from malware attacks. SSL certificates simply prove that your site is the website it claims to be. It is a sign of a responsible business who wants to confirm their identity to the visitor.
My site is PCI certified, am I immune?
PCI certification is a good first step towards securing your website. Unfortunately, being PCI certified does not ensure immunity to these attacks. PCI certification simply means that the website does follow some best practice guidelines. This does not ensure that a website is immune to code injection attacks.
Can advertisements on my website cause me to get blacklisted?
Yes, they can. Hackers can distribute malicious advertisements to advertisement distribution companies. These ads can find themselves circulated through the digital ecosystem onto various websites which can cause good websites to get marked as malware distribution points.
Why does my Speed Monitoring graph show -1 in the tooltip?
If StopTheHacker’s scanner probes your website and your website does not respond back to the request made for a page within 10 seconds, then the value in the speed monitoring/load time graph shows up as -1. This does not mean your website was not available or was down, it simply means it took more than 10 seconds for your website to respond back.
How can I change my preferences for Uptime and Speed Monitoring?
Log into your StopTheHacker account, then click “Edit Service” on the right of the website. You can then check/uncheck the speed and uptime monitoring boxes to enable/disable the features. If you uncheck the box for uptime monitoring, you will not receive any email alerts if your site becomes unavailable. Speed monitoring does not generate any alerts.
What is Uptime and Speed Monitoring?
Uptime Monitoring is a feature of StopTheHacker’s security service that will send you an alert if your website becomes unavailable. You also have the option to see a detailed status of your website’s uptime by logging into your account by visiting https://panel.stopthehacker.com. Speed Monitoring will allow you to see how fast your webpages are loading and website visitor experience. Both these features are available, free of cost to StopTheHacker’s users who subscribe to the professional, business or business + editions.
When I try to select a service from StopTheHacker, I see a message that says: Your site has 403 pages. My site only has 20 pages, Why do I see this message?
Your site may have many more publicly accessible web pages or web objects than you think. For example — Default pages hosted by your web server.PDF files, advertisement files (SWFs) accessible via your site. Dynamically generated by your content management system (WordPress) or framework (Django).
