Drupal Penetration Testing

Drupal is a content management system (CMS) that enables you to create a website or blog from scratch, or to improve an existing website. It is used by some of the world’s largest organizations, including The Economist, The White House, and The United Nations.

Drupal is also a popular target for hackers. In 2012, a Drupal security hole was exploited to hack into the servers of the United States Department of Justice. In 2015, a Drupal bug was exploited to hack into the servers of the United States Office of Personnel Management.

Despite its popularity, Drupal websites are often left vulnerable to attack due to a lack of proper security measures. This is where penetration testing comes in.

Penetration testing is a process of testing a website or application for vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers. By conducting a penetration test, you can identify any potential security weaknesses in your Drupal website before hackers have a chance to exploit them.

There are a number of different ways to conduct a penetration test, but the most common method is to use automated tools to scan your website for known vulnerabilities. These tools can be run from your own computer or from a remote server.

Once the scan is complete, you will be presented with a report that details any potential vulnerabilities that were found. From there, you can take steps to fix the vulnerabilities and secure your website.

To protect your Drupal website from hackers, it is important to perform regular penetration tests. A penetration test is a simulated attack on your website, designed to find security vulnerabilities.

If you are not familiar with penetration testing, it is best to hire a professional to conduct the test for you. There are a number of companies that offer penetration testing services, and they will have the experience and expertise to properly secure your website.

Navigating the digital shift

We all know our digital era has brought about a transformation in the way organisations interact with their audiences. That transformation has been different from sector to sector - in some, there has been a fundamental rewrite of the rules with the old and the new thrown into the competition. Think Amazon, then think of your local hardware store.

Zen and the art of support and maintenance

There was a time when you could just buy an application, maybe on a CD-ROM if you remember those, install it on your computer and it would just work - forever. Or at least until the computer broke down. So you might ask, given that a website is ‘sort of’ an application, why does it even need support and maintenance?

There is a wide range of eco-friendly and carbon neutral options available today and the costs compare well with the rest of the market. With global suppliers such as Amazon Web Services all the way down to niche providers offering environmentally friendly hosting options, there is no excuse for not making this key transition.
