How to use name server records to locate malicious domains en masse
Malicious domains often come in the form of phishing sites looking to steal usernames, passwords, and other sensitive information by impersonating a well-known brand. Mitigating phishing threats requires constant attention by information security teams. In this post we’ll demonstrate the value of DNS records, specifically name server (NS) records to locate phishing and other malicious sites en masse.
Mitigating SSH based attacks – Top 15 Best SSH Security Practices
SSH is one of the most popular communication protocols on the Internet. It's widely used by developers, webmasters, and sysadmins. It allows you to gain remote access to your new Cloud or Dedicated box in just seconds using an encrypted communication channel.
DNS records and types you didn’t know about
DNS records are an important part of internet. It is from DNS records that DNS servers know which domain is associated with what IP address. To simplify, we can turn to an analogy: your home address has coordinates that helps locate them in GPS. Since nobody can really remember that string of number precisely, you would tell them your street name and number. The same concept exists with domains and IP addresses, domains being street names and numbers, IP addresses being longitude points.
8 tips to prevent DNS attacks
The DNS is the heart and soul of the internet. It's like a giant phonebook that your computer uses to map hostnames to IP addresses in order to interact with public services such as websites.
