Bad extensions now main source of Magento hacks: a solution!
Well, it could be the same with Opencart Sites, when Mods are
downloaded from shady Places. That's always a Risk, even with
'regular' Extensions, free or paid. We experienced such a Case
with a Crypto-Miner Code on the OC Extension Section already,
not so long ago.

But it always potentially dangerous, if someone, not familiar,
tries to modify a Car-Engine, or some Software. One just has
to be aware of that, and act accordingly. Access- and Error Logs
should be checked on a daily schedule, to find out, who's accessing
the Shop Site, and what 'Access Commands' are used for such. It's
Part of the Job, to make sure, like anywhere else in real life ... ;)

After locking out ~220 (OC Sites) IP Ranges so far, like:

Code: Select all

deny from 213.163.93.
deny from 213.251.
deny from 216.
and ~500 IP Ranges on my Swiss Club Site, in addition to about
800 HTTP_REFERER - HTTP_USER_AGENT - REQUEST URL Lines, like:

Code: Select all

RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.rambler\.ru [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.rv\.ua [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^.dontknow\.me [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP:PROXY_CONNECTION}    !^$ [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP:XPROXY_CONNECTION}   !^$ [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP:HTTP_PC_REMOTE_ADDR} !^$ [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP:HTTP_CLIENT_IP}      !^$ [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^WebCapture [NC,OR] 
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Alexibot [NC,OR] 
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^asterias [NC,OR] 
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Zeus [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Zeus\.*Webster [NC,OR]
over the past 1.5 decades, I also redirect all OC Site Intruder href-links
to Vegas: :laugh:
It add's a little more to Security, and to not beeing targeted by those,
only adding to Traffic, for not one good reason at all. ;)

It was, is, and it will be also in future the fact, that scriptkiddies, so some called hackers, other stupid people and as well criminals will try to steal everything they will find in the net.
Credit Card, bank account and personal data are on the top of their list.

At least, it is our responsibility when operating Webshops, to force the security.
Do everything we can, to make these stores as safe as possible.

That starts witht the provider/hoster: do not use any 'free' offer.
Second, try to avoid cheap offers, you may share the server with thousands of others (which can lead to be a victim if another website on the same server is hacked and is infecting all others).
Third, do not use extensions, modules, templates NOT from official sites, a result may such: viewtopic.php?f=199&t=211655&p=754807

Just to mention the most made mistakes.

Ernie -- why not use fail2ban ? Seems like it would save you a lot of time.

Well, I don't feel like to ask my Hoster, to add some Code, just to
enable me to make use of things like fail2ban.
And I like to know, who's trying to give me a hard time. :P
It's interesting to see, what they use on Code, to possibly get in ... 8)

I use Razztech's free 301 Redirect Pages for OC:
https://www.opencart.com/index.php?rout ... n_id=25864
and Exife's (gone ...) nice OC Security Module, to get & have control,
without spending much time, except for frequently adding some IP's
to my ROOT .htaccess File manually too... :D

You must be on shared hosting if you have to ask, no thanks. Seems like a lot of wasted time, but if you're bored have at it!

You must be on shared hosting ...
That's correct, shared with more than 1'000 others, using the same IP ... :laugh:
It's much cheaper, and more 'representative', when it comes to compare
Performance with other OC Sites, most likely also using shared hosting. ;)

One only has to make sure, to get the best Hoster in Town, then, one has no problem.
And beeing up to 100% Siteload on GTMetrix already, only Yslow could possibly still go
up a little more, but I'm satisfied with 92%, for the price I pay, to keep my ~40 different
active URL's in one place. It's less than a BigMac Menu with a large Coke per Month,
to be part of the Game, top secure, and without a single compromise, or even some
Sub-Hosters in between ... ;)
