all of us aware of the threat of hackers and there are many ways to protect your database that is driven by ASP or PHP website from hacker attacks for strong security measures. This are the things that you need to learn to get ride of sql injection and XSS (cross-site scripting) via the URL querystring and form inputs.1. Do a habit for any registration make a long password anad make sure they are alphanumeric from a 10 to 12 character password and that is recommended. Also you must avoid a similar and obvious to guess like birthdays and anniversaries. If you are worried that you might get a chance of forgetting them you can write it down and hide and keep it on a secure place that your only the one who know's it and access it.2. Configure your firewall that helps to screen the incoming information that comes into your system by blocking unauthorized access that depends how you gonna do it and to make it sure your firewall is properly set according to your security needs but if you dont do it properly your computer's firewall can be the hacker's door towards your system.3.You need to make sure you have anti-virus software that is updated and fully working. Your first defense is an anti-virus software that can help you ward off malicious attacks and viruses especially those that will allow hackers to control your computer.4.Try to hack your own site. This manner you would know how hacker can hack you the way you do after you know what are those possible way's that your website can be hack you can avoid into it or give more security that way you think.5.Make sure you have checked and validated all inputs to your site. Cross-site scripting is one weakness of websites that can be used by hackers by inserting scripts into your webpage that may lead to their access to confidential information and the likes.September 18, 2010 at 3:26 am #32988MitzKeymaster

Update Your Website Software. Regularly update your website platform software as updates become available. WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and other common platforms periodically release security software. In many instances, security updates are to plug vulnerabilities in the existing versions. In like manner, update plugin software when new releases become available.February 19, 2013 at 11:21 am #32992laura2013Participant
