How an Attacker Can Gather Basic Information from Your Website

If you are a new website developer or non-tech person then it is important for you to know that how an attacker can gather the very basic information of your website.

– So, let’s think like an attacker

First, the attacker will go for the WHOIS search.

Wherein he can check the server IP, the website owner’s name, and address, and other information.

  • After a basic search, the attacker will check to see the server your website uses and which language your website is built on.
  • For that, there’s a website called BuiltWith.
  • Enter the website that you want to check into the search bar.

    Web scraper is also great plugin by Google Chrome. I have installed it and its giving me literally every information that builtwith does. I am also trying to keep myself updated by learning security tips. I feel like darkreading.com and http://gotowebsecurity.com are doing great job publishing daily news and security tips. We can be safe if we want to.
