Web Shell Attacks

Deploying malicious scripts, pose security risks, enabling unauthorized access, data theft, and service disruptions.

Web Shell Attacks involve the deployment of malicious scripts,known as web shells, on web servers. A web shell is a malicious script or program that attackers disguise as legitimate files. Once deployed, these web shells grant unauthorized remote access to attackers, allowing them to execute commands, manipulate files, and exploit vulnerabilities. This poses a severe cybersecurity threat, enabling unauthorized control over compromised systems,data theft, and potential disruptions to web services. Countermeasures include regular security audits, file integrity monitoring, and strict access controls to prevent and detect web shell deployments.
