Backdooring (Draft)

Backdooring

·         Backdooring is an HTML hack that allows hackers to access computers by rewriting either:

o   the .htaccess file

o   the .php file

·         Backdooring is a very mediocre hack but it can lead to some serious consequences.

o   Installed keyloggers

o   changed/stolen passwords

o   compromised sites and browsers

·         The code in a backdooring script checks to see if the CURL is available and if the three files retrieved from a 2nd party site are available.

·         Hackers who use backdooring attempt to exploit old, obsolete software.

·         To check for hacking, check your access logs and file ownerships.

·         Also check by using virus or malware scans.
