Common dangers of website malware

We must admit that most compromised websites have a similar subset of malware. There are usually several types of backdoors, a web-shell, a mailing script and payloads, phishing pages, crypto-miners or doorways.

And actually, web-shells and backdoors don’t threaten the website until they are used. The hacker needs these types of malicious scripts to manage a compromised website. In order to run other malicious scripts, upload phishing pages, inject spyware, collect sensitive info, and so on. But the final goal is to use web hosting resources to steal or make money.

It may sound odd, but a hacker doesn’t need a compromised website itself. However, they do need chip hosting resources. Ultimately, the majority of websites hacked via automated untargeted attacks are used as a place to host malicious files and scripts. Or to send out spam.

For example, you can observe the following evil instances on hacked websites.

  • phish pages steal credit cards, bank accounts, Paypal, Google and Apple ID accounts – collecting and using this data in order to steal money and other sensitive info;
  • spam attempts to send out banking trojans;
  • crypto-currency miners, such as Monero Miner (both server-side and client-side), to make money on 3rd party resources;
  • hidden redirects on visitors’ mobiles and search engines to malicious or promo websites – in order to inject visitors or cash out of digital subscriptions.

 

What are the consequences of website malware activity

All this malicious activity on a website may lead to the hosting provider blocking the account or VPS. Because it affects hosting security and their reputation. That’s why it’s very important to identify the threat and malware ASAP. So, keep eye on your website files and pages for danger flags.

Consider that you can’t detect server-side malware by online malware scanners. Because the only thing they can access is a web page HTML code. But not the infected server-side scripts. That’s the reason website administrators have to scan website files on hosting for backdoors, web-shells and other types of malware.
