Advanced Website Security Setup

Project Description:

In this project, I was tasked with setting up robust security measures for a website and its associated CDN (Cloudflare) to protect against massive hacker attacks, including DDoS assaults and attempts to exploit known directory vulnerabilities.

My approach was comprehensive, focusing on both prevention and rapid response.

I also utilize premium security services that leverage the cloud, which is continuously updated to ensure protection is carried out in real-time.

Overall I can improve website security by understanding how malware injection works, especially the Japanese keyword hack. This knowledge allows me to prevent your website from getting hacked.

There are four main components vulnerable to hacking: shared hosting, plugins, WP core updates, and security rules (blacklisting, whitelisting, rate limiting) that need to be set up on the website and CDN like Cloudflare, depending on what you use.

I have a comprehensive understanding of this, so please feel free to ask me if you have any issues

Key Responsibilities and Achievements:

  • Rate Limiting Configuration: Implemented rate limiting to control traffic and prevent overload from malicious sources.
  • Login Page Protection: Hid the login page from plain sight to deter unauthorized access attempts.
  • Security Notifications: Set up alerts for plugin updates and notifications for plugins with known security vulnerabilities, advising immediate removal.
  • Directory Path Protection: Secured specific directory paths that are commonly targeted by hackers.
  • Geographic Blocking: Blocked access from countries with negative reputations for cyber threats.
  • Traffic Throttling: Managed massive traffic spikes by throttling visits based on specific thresholds, ensuring uninterrupted caching services and downtime monitoring.
  • Shared Hosting Vulnerabilities: Addressed common security oversights in shared hosting environments, such as weak user passwords and overly permissive folder permissions, which often lead to admin-level breaches.
  • Malware Defense: Tackled prevalent malware issues, specifically the widespread ‘Japanese Keyword Hack' that resulted in ranking drops and disproportionate indexing of Japanese language content.

Impact and Outcome:

The security setup significantly reduced the website's vulnerability to cyber-attacks, ensuring uninterrupted service and maintaining the integrity of the site's content.

The proactive measures taken not only fortified the website against current threats but also prepared it for future challenges in the ever-evolving landscape of cyber security.

Note: Improperly executed security setup can impact website performance, block services of plugins/SaaS used by the website (such as caching plugins),

hinder website production activities like creating landing pages due to blocked access paths, and drain server resources because it operates beyond specified limits.

This project underscored the importance of comprehensive security measures in the digital space.

It was a testament to the fact that effective security is not just about setting up barriers but also about continuous monitoring, rapid response, and staying ahead of potential threats. The experience was invaluable in honing my skills in cybersecurity and website protection.
