    WordCamp Santander 2017Speaker: Tomas Sierra

    November 22, 2017 — ¿Has visto alguna vez algún WordPress hackeado? ¿Sabes qué hacer si tienes la mala suerte de tener uno?

    En esta charla analizaremos uno de los peores escenarios posibles, un CASO REAL DE UN WORDPRESS HACKEADO con multitud de archivos maliciosos y código ofuscado, donde se esconde una Webshell, un sistema operativo completo, desde la cual el ciberdelincuente (que no hacker) puede realizar un montón de acciones en la instalación comprometida.

    Analizaremos el código de los archivos maliciosos, los decodificaremos y uniremos hasta llegar a ver la Webshell y veremos algunos parámetros de seguridad para evitar esto.

  • Daniel Olson: Alternative Hacks: WordPress Security From The Outside Looking In

    WordCamp D.C. 2017Speaker: Daniel Olson

    November 8, 2017 — From plugins that promise a layer of security to lofty opinions about file permissions, it’s hard to tell what works. Simply put, a security plan that aims to slow down someone who’s already in your house isn’t really a plan.

    I’d like to discuss security as the foundation of a site rather than an add-on and approach this idea from the outside looking in. We’ll cover a high-level process on how to enhance security with version control, hosting and access management, 3rd party integrations and more. My goal is to highlight flaws in common practices and present alternative ones to create more secure WordPress sites.

    As a developer working with businesses and Universities with thousands of hacking attempts per day I’ve learned what works.
