Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be a Host Geek customer to order this service?

No! We are more then happy to provide this service for any server service running WHM/cPanel on supported operating systems hosted by other providers.

I already have ‘Server Management’ – how is this service different?

Host Geek’s VPS services all include Server Management, however this security service goes above and beyond the standard security configuration installed by default.
One of the core components of this service is the active scanning software, which proactively protects your server from malicious scripts

Will this service stop my websites from being defaced?

Not necessarily. The aim of this service is to identify any threats already on the server, and help protect against future threats. If your site is compromised via an insecure password for example, this service will not be able to stop unauthorised changes to your website.

Will this service prevent exploitation of my server?

No. It will however notify you of suspicious files that either exist or have been uploaded to the server, and will help stop exploits from being uploaded to the server. The scanning software cannot prevent all types of exploits being uploaded or run on the server, however it has a large and constantly updated database of exploit fingerprints.

Will you clean up my server with this service?

No. As part of this service we will scan the server for exploits, and will provide you with a detailed report of what is found. If you require assistance with removing existing exploits from the server, standard engineering hourly rates apply.

Which web script products will the service check for outdated version and report to me?

The software is currently able to check for outdated versions of the following web scripts:

Some great features include:

  • Over 3000 known exploit script fingerprint matches (in addition to standard ClamAV detection)
  • Known viruses via ClamAV
  • Regular expression pattern matching to help identify known/unknown exploits
  • Filename matching
  • Suspicious file names
  • Suspicious file types
  • Binary exeuctables
  • Some illegal web software installations
  • Custom user specified regular expression patterns
  • Comprehensive constant scanning of all user data – scans all user files as soon as they are modified
  • Daily check for new Exploit Fingerprints
  • Check for old version of popular web scripts (e.g. WordPress, Joomla, osCommerce)
  • Bayes probability scanning – scans scripts and passes the contents through an algorithm which produces a probability as to whether it is an exploit
  • Monitor files and directories for changes and send an email report of activity
