In this world of e-Commerce, most sites are attractive targets to hackers because of the huge amount of transactions and purchases done on daily basis. Even if the transactions are not directly processed within the website. The hacker can compromise while rerouting the customer to a false page or during payment processing. To avoid such a scenario of spoofing on your Magento 2 website, you can use the Magento2 Security module. The module will provide security advancements for your store.
The store owner can blocklist IPs and can also ban complete countries from accessing the website. The store owner can even stop the customers or other sub admins to add restricted file type on the website.
Some of the benefits of having the following extension are as follow:
Security against Proxy logins & IP spoofing
Brute attacks and proxy login are one of the most common attacks which are encountered. If you are having an easy login and password then the chances are even higher. This can lead to a huge loss for the website owners.
To prevent the following brute attacks, you can use Magento2 Security module in which the store owner can keep a log for the brute attacks with their URL and can even restrict those IPs
The brute attacks will be reported automatically to the Abuse IP with the module. Even if the confidence score is lower than the defined by the admin then the admin will not be able to login to the website.
Correct File Permission
Many website owners who are running their business through ecommerce are not aware of all the technical aspects of the website code end.
Even if you know the technical aspect and whats to provide correct file access for all files. It is often hard to check each file through the command prompt and update the file access.
This often leads to some loophole of vulnerable files on the website like providing more access to the files than required.
To avoid such a scenario, Magento 2 Security module offers the store owner to view all the files and if the required access is not available the store owner can view the error status for the respective file.
Secure File Uploads
File upload vunerability is one of the majr threads of nowadays ecommerce. Malicious files can provide the hackers access to a webserver using a reverse shell or backdoor.
Let’s take an example, suppose you have the magento 2 website and the customer will upload a profile image. It can be in any format like png, jpg, pdf, and the hacker can write the code in language in which the code is written like php and upload it as a jpg.
This will give access to the hacker to hack into your site. But with this module, the store owner can restrict those file extensions uploads which may carry buggy codes.
Also, the admin can get email notifications for the uploads of malicious file extensions.
It is quite difficult to keep a check on the fraud customers who create fake accounts and share bad reviews on popular products or websites to lower their ratings.
Well! With the Magento2 Security module, the customer having the valid email address will be able to log in by mailbox layer.
In addition, the store owner can enable two-factor authetication for the logged in users to prevent theft of customer’s identity for all the ill work.
