Malware Removal & DDoS Mitigation

At Ethically, offer malware removal through our “White Hat” hacking crew.

Full Diagnostic Check to Detect Loopholes

Anti DDoS prevention can be as simple as an effective firewall. However, a vulnerability assessment or pen testing will be needed to be done to ensure maximum security. To identify malware on your system we will need access to your server. We would need to conduct a full internal, and external penetration testing procedure to identify threats – to then go about resolving them. Pen Testing is the best malware removal option as it gives full analysis of the flaws leading to the most effective methods of removal.

DDoS Mitigation

We also offer a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) mitigation service. A Distributed Denial of Service is when an attacker will send high volumes of spam traffic (zombie bots) to a systems server through multiple sources, looking to disrupt that system ultimately ending in an inaccessible system.

A Verisign Distributed Denial of Service Trends report stated that, DDoS activity picked up by 85% in two years with 32% of those attacks in 2015 targeting software-as-service, IT services, and cloud computing companies.

One of the first things needed to mitigate a DDoS attack is identifying the increase in traffic and the normal traffic by defining traffic patterns. This is done by comparing signatures, examining many different features of the traffic, including IP addresses, cookie variations, HTTP headers, and JavaScript footprints.

DDoS Attacks

There are several different tools used to perform a DDoS attack. Some are embedded into malware and will attack without the user being aware like Mydoom and Slowloris.

Stacheldraht is another great example of a commonly used DDoS tool. It uses a layered structure where the attacker uses a client program to connect to compromised systems which issue commands to the zombie agents which in turn will facilitate the ddos attack. Trojan viruses can be used, leading the target to download malware with a zombie agent within it – or it could already be contained within the Trojan Virus itself.

  • There are several other ways that can be used which include:
    Application-layer attacks
  • Degradation-of-service attacks
  • HTTP slow POST DoS attack
  • Challenge Collapsar (CC) attack
  • Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) flood
  • Nuke
  • Peer to peer attacks
  • Permanent denial of service attacks
  • Reflected / spoofed attack (DRDOS)
  • DNS Amplification
  • Mirai Botnet
  • R U dead yet (RUDY)
  • Sack Panic
  • Shrew Attack
  • Slow Read Attack
  • SYN flood
  • Teardrop attacks
  • Telephony denial of service
  • Sophisticated Low Bandwidth Distributed Denial Of Service Attack
  • TTL Expiry Attack
  • UPnP Attack

and the list continues on with new attacks constantly being formed as new equipment and updates boost attackers options.

DDoS Mitigation Solutions

There are also many DDoS mitigation tools which our operatives have on their tool belt as well as years of experience using these tools which include but are not limited to:

The best way to defend from DDoS attacks is to have a team, like us here at Ethically Hacking, on hand for emergencies and to implement anti DDoS technology like a firewall, as mentioned above. This helps to ensure the best spyware removal leaving you safe to roam site servers across different platforms and keeps your data secure.

Every second of delay with malware is costly. Act NOW.
