It has not been a good month for WordPress. Earlier this month there was a large DoS attack against the WordPress admin page and now there is a remote code execution vulnerability with WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache.
There is currently a significant attack being launched against WordPress based sites. The attackers are attempting to brute force log into the WordPress administrative interface. From what we have seen they are attempting to use the user-id of “admin” and various passwords.
The best defense you can employ against an email hacker is creating a strong password for your account, to prevent ‘brute force’ (automated password guessing) attempts.
When a VPS or dedicated server does not include full server management, it is referred to as an unmanaged server. Unmanaged servers are a great option for customers who are comfortable with the Linux command line interface (CLI), and have the knowledge to properly secure and optimize their server.
As a web hosting company running thousands of websites and even more email accounts, we are constantly battling spam. Usually the spam is incoming (sent to our customers), but sometimes our customers unknowingly send out spam.
Security is a double-edge sword. No one likes having the web site or email compromised, but you don’t like getting locked out by our security systems. To "resolve" this problem, we have implemented a new system to allow customers to easily (and automatically) unblock themselves.
WordPress is a free and open-source tool for creating websites. In the past, WordPress was primarily used for blogs but has since become a full service content management system. Umbra Hosting provides an automated method for installing WordPress and many other website platforms, using a tool called Softaculous.
At Umbra Hosting, we offer a fully managed service for our VPS and dedicated servers. We take care of the technical aspects of managing a server, enabling you to focus on your core business.
Many people wonder what shared web hosting is, and we plan on answering this question for you so you feel comfortable hosting your web site with Umbra Hosting. A shared web hosting account refers to a web hosting service where many websites reside on one web server connected to the Internet. Each site “sits” on its own partition, or section/place on the server to keep it separate from other sites.
