    The most frequent method used by hackers in the past few months has been through compromised FTP credentials.

    The way it happens is that a PC with FTP access to a website gets a virus, yes I know everyone has at least one anti-virus program on their PC these days, but it’s extremely easy for hackers to create new viruses that are undetectable.

    The virus works in a few different ways.

    First, if the FTP software you’re using doesn’t encrypt the username and password it stores so you don’t have to type that information in each time you want to update your website, the virus finds these files, opens them, steals the username, password and site, then sends it to a server that carries out the website hacking.

    Often times, people don’t store their username and password to protect themselves from this, however, the next method takes care of those people.

    The second way the virus works is by keyboard logging. For those who want to type in their username and password each time, the virus records their keyboard strokes, sends that information to a server which carries out the website hacking.

    The third way the virus works is by “sniffing” the FTP traffic. Since FTP transmits all data, including the username and password in plain text, it’s easy for the virus to “see” the FTP login information in the data stream, steal it, and you know what happens from there.

    The fourth way that we’ve recently seen is the virus injects it’s malicious code as the file is sent from the PC to the website. This method will not leave obvious clues in the FTP log files on the web server because the IP address is a valid PC with valid login credentials.

    The fifth method used by this virus, is that as the user sends a legitimate file to the web site, the virus sends a different, infected file to the same website. We’ve just seen this one recently.

    So, the key to preventing some website infections is to keep your PC clean of viruses.
