Scanning, fixing, and reporting security issues with Security Blanket


Article from Issue 115/2010

Trusted’s Security Blanket lets you analyze security compliance in a few easy steps.

I don’t know about you, but I spend entirely more time locking down my servers and making sure they stay locked down than I would like. At least once in the past (that I know of), one of my servers has been compromised. I failed to a) upgrade WordPress and b) ensure that my server was locked down so local access didn’t allow an attacker to escalate privileges easily. The problem was not that I didn’t know how to lock down my servers or have the time to do so; I just had other things to do, and trying to keep up with everything you need to do to secure a server and keep it secured is not my idea of fun.
