Protecting From DDoS Attacks

Mar 31, 2009

This is a quote from an unrelated thread in the Dedicated Server Forum, I didnt want to hijack the thread so thought I would bring my question over here:

If you're running a DDoS prone site, you'd likely be better off with a DDoS-specialized provider such as Awknet, Staminus, or Black Lotus. But as mentioned, a lot of attacks can be stopped simply by proper tuning of your IP stack and some simple firewall rules.

My question is as a new Dedicated Server Owner what tuning and rules do I need to implement in order to protect me from these "small scale DDoS Attacks"?

I do not run a DDoS prone site(i hope not lol) but I want to secure myself as much as possible and have a headache free run other than the headaches I cause myself of course.

Protecting Against Spammers?

Jan 29, 2008

I was on my visitors on AWstats, and when looking up most of the top IPs (the ones that viewed the most pages), most of them were associated with IANA, and tagged as spam/hacker IPs.

Of course, I've blocked all of those IPs with my .htaccess file, but how can I further protect my server from such threats? How can I rid my server of these spammers/hackers?

Protecting Content

Mar 14, 2008

My company provides various reports and dynamic website content to clients whose websites we design and host as well as to clients who have their sites designed and hosted elsewhere. We do not want people to be able to easily link to our content or bring it up in an iframe or whatever unless they are a paid subscriber. We would like to be able to limit the content to the domains of paying clients and keep it from displaying elsewhere. Note also that out of several reports, publications and content we offer, clients can mix and match, subscribe to just one element or all of them (The subscription levels are managed by us on the back end.)

Currently we have a system that is built in Perl/Postgres SQL and it is problematic(constantly failing and not very secure) Also it requires that the content be loaded into an iframe on the client's site or linked directly. We would like a solution that is PHP-based and can talk to our existing database. We would also like to be able to display the content on the page without an iframe so it is more search engine friendly, etc.

An off-the-shelf solution would be preferable if one is available - and we like to support the open source community.

Protecting Memory For Certain Programs

Oct 15, 2009

I was curious to know if there's a way to protect memory for certain programs. I have a VPS that is fairly light on memory, and there's been a few occasions when a program/bug will go wild and eat up all the memory locking me out of ssh/webmin.

Is there any way I can protect certain memory for certain processes/programs. Ideally I'd like some way for ssh to stay up in all situations.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Password Protecting Sites With Nginx And PHP-FPM

Jun 21, 2015

I am seeing some some some strange behaviour when password protecting directories served by nginx and PHP-FPM. If I have a site set up so that 'Process PHP by nginx' is selected under ('Websites & Domains>Web Server Settings>nginx settings') and set up password protection ('Websites & Domains>Password-Protected Directories') PHP pages are still served without asking for a password.

If I untick 'Process PHP by nginx' the behaviour returns to normal and an attempt to any access files results in the password request.Is this behaviour by design? If so, it is not made clear when you set up the password protection that it will not apply to PHP pages if you have nginx process the PHP pages.

OS: CentOS 6.6 (Final)
Plesk version: 12.0.18 Update #51

Anti-Virus Recommendations

Apr 13, 2009

We have 2 servers, one running Windows 2003 Enterprise that hosts a ColdFusion app, and one running Windows 2003 Standard that hosts our SQL database that is used by the CF app. Nothing else runs on them.

Does anyone have any suggestions for anti-virus products that we could use on these? I don't want one of those elaborate and expensive "suite" programs. I just need to protect the boxes.

I use Kaspersky on our individual machines, and I really don't care much for Norton anymore.

Cpanel And Virus Protection?

Apr 10, 2005

Does anyone know of any virus protection software that will work with Cpanel. Actually it probably doesn't have to work with Cpanel.. but here is my situation..

I have a lot of people uploading PDF’s and Word docs to our MySQL database, for other people to download. So far I have been downloading the files to my computer first and scanning them, then approving them. it would be nice if I can automate this check some how. I'm wondering of anyone out there does this sort of thing with the dedicated servers they run. Maybe just putting virus software on the server is good enough.

My Limestone Server - Virus Attacked Or What?

Jul 23, 2009

Alright guys - my server the past two weeks is just freaking ridiculous. It's a Core2Quad Q9300 2.5ghz server with 8gb of ram. It should be fast as hell. I can't move 20 e-mails in my mail client without the server grinding to a complete halt and httpd and mysql going unresponsive. Right now I'm just trying to copy a damned screen shot of the task manager performance tab and it's taking about 3 minutes to paste it - even though the CPU utilization is averaging only 20% at the moment and memory is only 2.5gb.

I restarted WAMP and now it seems to be running smoother. My Outpost firewall, though, didn't show too many connections to the server that it was maxing out.

Here's my ping responses just now while I was typing this - I was watching the firewall connections and I was only having like 60 connections to httpd, 20 connections to mysql, 5-10 to my SmarterTools mail server, and then my remote desktop connection. My network utilization got up to a whole 5% - so it's not that I have too many connections or something. Here's the ping responses:

HTML Frammer Virus Attack On Website

Jun 6, 2009

I'm a web hosting reseller. I'm now running on a server, purchased from Hosterio (previously I used WebHostingBuzz). From last few months I'm facing massive virus attack on my server. There are 3-4 Joomla based websites hosted on the server. Most of them (including some non-joomla sites) are getting attacked by HTML frammer and similar viruses. In most of the cases, symptoms are, injection of hidden iframes either at the start or at the end of body tags.

I kindly request the experts here to suggest me the optimum solution. What security measures should I take immediately? What are the recommended file permission and settings that can be set as a WHM account owner? What should I recommend to my clients? Please suggest.

My server specs are:

Linux Server, WHM-Reseller Hosting Account, Apache Web Server Running on Dedicated IP.

PS: If you can suggest a tool to quickly manage file permissions (because FTP clients are taking lot of time to modify permissions of Joomla site, where number of files are more than 2000-3000) on my server, I'll be more grateful.

Xenvz Stop My 2 VPSs, Because I Spread Conficker Virus?

Oct 13, 2009

Last month I order 2 Xen VPSs from and use them for VPN proxy.

But a few days ago, xenvz stopped one vps and state "This is because it is spreading the Conficker virus.". I'm a little surprise because there's only 10+ users on this vps. Most of them use VPN for visting Youtube or P2P download or gaming. And Conficker virus can only run on Windows, but all my vps is running on Debian.

Maybe someone had download something that contain Conficker virus?

Anyway, I had to move a few users to another vps yesterday.

But xenvz stop my another vps today for the same reason!

I really do not know whether or not one of my user is spreading or other reason, but as I know, Conficker virus had affected thousands of hosts in the past. If someone download or being affect by conficker for any reason, provider then stop their host, I'm afraid thousands of sites would down.
