All GlobalSign branded SSL Certificates (excludes AlphaSSL) issued on and after 22nd December 2011 will start benefitting from FREE Malware Monitoring on their websites.
If you have a GlobalSign SSL Certificate from XDnet your site will benefit from daily HackAlert scans which can identify any pages infected by drive-by downloads and provide alarms for “zero-day” malware threats hidden in your websites, protecting you and your users from the damaging effects of malware.
If malware is detected by HackAlert it will instantly email you with details, including the offending code snippet of the malware so you can quickly remove it from your website.
Every day thousands of websites are hacked and used to distribute malware to the websites visitors. Such malware is developed to compromise PCs and spread viruses, hijack computers or steal personal information.
Unless remedied quickly, an infected website will quickly be flagged or blacklisted by Google for hosting malicious content, you can expect traffic to your site to drop significantly when potential customers see worrying warnings about your website potentially harming their computers.
HackAlert acts as an early warning system against zero-day attacks. By passively monitoring your website and identifying breaches quickly – giving you time to remove malicious code before too much damage is caused.
Malware left on your site can cause untold damage to your brand and permanently associate your brand/site with malware and untrusted with users and search engines. Sites found to be hosting malware or malicious code may also be suspended by XDnet Web Services until the offending items are removed.
