Check the Security of Your Site

When you or your institution taking a decision to be on the Internet then your reputation will also be determined by your image on the Internet.

Course the concepts of public relations (PR), known in the world also apply in cyberspace, difference in the world of cyber infrastructure is able to interact with two (2) way to make things more interesting. Surely infrastructure capability interaction of two (2) way is only useful if we want to interact with many people on the internet, speed and our ability to respond to society that eventually became an important part in many social aspects in human relations.

Aspect is no less important is the ability of our defense against the attack site cracker who want to disrupt the site. Imagine if it turns out the site information changed by the hacker / cracker the shame of having a site that is more embarrassing is the owner of the site because of the impression it got so bad. Imagine if the site is a site shop or bank would be very difficult for us to achieve public confidence will spread to many as there would be no trade transactions. How can we believe that the transaction will not be performed if at the peep by others? Are we to believe that the credit card number will not be stolen?

One of the simplest ways is to ask help from colleagues who are experts in the field of network security to help secure Internet site that we have. There are several services on the Internet that can give service to check for and secure a site that we have. Examples are secure-me.net is service on the Internet that can secure or at least if we use the Internet settings pretty well and not perforated by a cracker. Examples of this service is http://www.secure-me.net

Secure-Me (http://www.secure-me.net) is a service on the Internet that the majority can be obtained free of charge to see if we have a network system is safe and there are no open holes. Indeed scans that are complex are not given for free. Shown in the picture is http://www.secure-me.net when we do the registration for asking for help to the system we have in the scan.

Secure-Me is not just a regular scan. After the initial scan, Secure-Me will evaluate the results to then detect the weaknesses that exist in the system. Because of their experience in the system, the scanning range of secure-me every week would not want to try many new things. Shown in the picture is also shown that queuing queue of various machines to be scanned. Indeed, for basic scan only takes 3-4 minutes for each machine. For complete scan takes about 30-60 minutes.

Is your system secure enough? Statistics obtained from colleagues in the secure-me from the moment they start scanning ago in July and runs more than 32,000 scans only 3% of the existing machine to obtain a good score. 97% of the machines on the Internet that they scan turned out to have one or more drawbacks. Including having unnecessary network services, public name, guest account, protection configuration, the printer is open to all people and so on. Obviously you need to ask yourself again whether you really safe?

Even crazier Secure-Me has a facility to remember the system setup network / computer in a way that if we could just ask Secure-Me for running the service scans repeated continuously to keep watch in case there are people who change the system setup that we use .

Another way can be traveled is friends with hacker friends in Indonesia there are some group of fellow hackers and their average age is still very young. Some of them include Wenas topnotch as ever in court in a Singapore court for breaking into the site in Singapore at the age of 15 years. They are the ones who are not haphazardly even in a very young age turned out to have extraordinary abilities beyond the capabilities of those who are much older and veterans on the Internet.

Actually, if only we could get along quite well with fellow hacker is actually they are good people too. Just as there is a kind of common friends bond between friends, fidelity herd becomes interesting when we enter the field of Internet security network. Often times we are actually helped by the young friends who informally help secure the Internet.
