You’ll see how this particular strain of malware propagates and evades detection, and what you can do to stop it infecting your system.

A hacker might not cause any noticeable damage when infiltrating your web server. You may not notice any change in performance or any loss of data.

But that doesn't mean everything is okay. A popular use of a compromised server is to distribute malware.

Malware is malicious software. It gets embedded into your website's pages and can infect any visitors to those sites.

Hackers do this by injecting malicious code into a database or into web page templates. Visitors get redirected to malicious sites, or inadvertently download trojans.
