Borislav is a copywriter with a keen eye for detail and a fascination for information technology that dates back to his childhood. During his content writing career, he has covered and analyzed a wide variety of subjects and topics, but he admits that helping readers figure out how the World Wide Web works has always been the most exciting challenge.
The global pandemic forced many people to stay at home and gave them enough free time to launch the projects they’ve been thinking about for so long.
Because Virtual Private Servers (VPS) offer the best environment between an affordable shared plan and a powerful dedicated server, many new website owners logically consider them as an excellent option to start.
Managing a virtual server includes a more hands-on approach from the user, and one essential task is setting up a VPS firewall. Let’s clear some of the confusion that surrounds the matter.
Cross-site Scripting (XSS) attacks have been around pretty much for as long as we’ve had web applications that help site owners create dynamic, functional websites. But even the first XSS attacks were observed back in the 1990s, right now, well into the 21st century, cross-site scripting continues to be a problem.
Today, we’ll figure out what cross-site scripting does, why hackers love it so much, and what prevents site owners from eliminating it.
Websites have come a long way since the first official page saw light 30 years ago. The range of functionality they now offer is pretty much endless, and we now use them regularly in our everyday lives. Under the hood, we have thousands of lines of code to thank for this, but we rarely come to think about how this code is generated.
Web development frameworks play a major part in it, and we’ll now look into how they work and which ones are the best for building a great website.
Those of us who remember the days when the internet wasn’t quite as ubiquitous, know just how much more difficult talking to people on the other side of the globe was.
We’ve been through a communication revolution, which, unfortunately, has also brought about an unwanted side effect – hordes of scammers trying to defraud us out of our money, break our computers, or cause other damage.
In today’s cybersecurity guide, we’re going to talk about one of their favorite weapons – spoofing attacks.
The first part of the 21st century saw the World Wide Web grow at break-neck speeds. The number of active internet users shot up, and so did the number of hours people spend online. In light of all this, you probably won’t be too surprised to find that the web hosting industry was also doing rather well.
In early 2020, however, the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and ruined quite a lot of people’s plans.
But how did this affect the hosting business?
Today, we are taking a closer look at one of the hottest topics in the last two years.
Over the years, we’ve seen far too many malware attacks that have had a genuinely devastating worldwide impact. For example, the ILOVEYOU worm in the early 2000s reportedly registered overfifty million infections in a matter of ten days, disrupting the operation of an estimated 10% of the internet-connected computers at the time.
More recently, in 2017, the WannaCry ransomware hit over 300,000 computers in around 150 countries, causing billions of dollars worth of damage.
Despite all this, many people continue to underestimate this threat. Today, we’ll try to fix that and learn how to build our defenses against malware attacks.
To say that the global economy wasn’t prepared for the Covid-19 pandemic would be an understatement. For example, in the US, the unemployment rates shot up to 14.8% in April 2020 – the highest level ever since data collection started in 1948.
A single virus managed to put an end to many businesses across different sectors of the economy. Still, it’s fair to say the web hosting industry managed to get away relatively unscathed.
