There are attacks like login brute force attacks, where it is not a problem as there is a very low chance the right user/pass combination will work within a few trials. Unfortunately, there are attacks when one good targeted request is enough to hack a web application and inject infected code or alter files and gain access. Since we started BitNinja,...

New dashboard function: filter your incidents by server or domain

We are happy to announce a long-awaited function at the BitNinja dashboard that facilitates your job to analyze attacks.

You will no longer need to scroll for long minutes to analyze the current problem as we provide a one-...
