How can we Stop possible 'Denial of Service' attacks if users

Posted 12 December 2007 - 06:38 AM

Hello,

How can we Stop possible 'Denial of Service' attacks if users send a large request body to the server.

How can we Disable users uploading a .htaccess and modifying the apache config & Disabling users from uploading and running their own php scripts?

What needs to be done to setup secure WevDAV connections via HTTPS?

Thanks

Install an intrusion detection system, like Snort.

Proper user administration. Deny executable permissions, deny write priviledges to the directory where .htaccess exists (or to the file itself).

All of this, is assuming that you are running on a *nix Server.

Just design the system in the right way. What kind of service are we talking about?

I recommend you to buy ddos attack protection from GigabitDC.COM.
