So I suggest you test all of those seven tools and utilize each of them on your site.

So I encourage you to join this class and this color hall grade. Those tools actually are. And Beto seven tools.

I know that because I have been using them for a while and I have never received any kind of spam from them. So the last step is to click on this Parton step, and next thing we need to do is to actually confirm the ownership of our site. So we need to authorize the stool in order to be able to test our site by adding the scan myself a security seal to the home page. So what you need to do is to edit your index file and add the specific seal. I'm gonna show you quickly how you can do that. So here I am not getting inside my Web server. And down here I have added the specific code in the photo. You're supposed that it. So I'm gonna go over to my site and show you how it looks. Scroll down to the footer and down here you can see this little batch. So in order to get the code for the seal unit, Jacob actors can my server click me of seal basically copied and pasted on site Save update and then time likley can confirm now. So I'm going to just confirm now, However, sometimes I have found that these doesn't work pretty well. For some reason, it doesn't find the security seal our site because even if you have other did so I'm gonna just keep click. You confirm later, and what is going to happen is that I'm going to receive the code that I could be pasted in my email and basically be told that I should redo this. I have six more different tools to show you have to secure site and you shall never trust on a single. In order to provide security for your site, you should always test your side to be different tools in order to ensure that your site is completely free from any kind off vulnerabilities. In my experience, a tool can never find all the vulnerabilities that that site might be exposed to. So what? This is why it's important to use several different tools in order to do this.

Blacklisting, injecting span and other kinds of common Warner built is that it's floating interest right now. Secondly, security is also going to clean and protect your website from different kinds of trends, and it basically works on any kind of fab side at this popular on the Internet right now, such as war pressure. Jumla drew people, it said. So let's go ahead and scan my site here. So I'm gonna just type in domain soccer training guy dot com and it's kind of website. Let's see what happens. This usually takes less than 10 seconds to complete, and down here we get a report going. What security have found with our side, we can see that we have a low risk of being infected by malware website blacklisting injected spam and defacements. However, it is recommended us to get our website firewall and here you have actually ability to click Patron, protect its security viral. I guess this is some kind off sales pitch where they are trying to sell you the security fire roll. I'm gonna just keep that in the website details. You can also see more about the least flings found and what security have scan it down here . We can see also the script. Finally, we have the Blackley status and this is important because you want to see whether your domain is clean by Google. So basically, if it is black least that then you are in big trouble because you will not receive any kind of traffic. You see also that it has bean tested with total safe web. It has been tested for fish tank in the opera browser site Advisers secure Mallory Labs black least spam hopes Debelle yandex and s it.

So I'm gonna just false there in order to save time in elected, complete the scan, and then I'm gonna go back to this lecture again. So take a cappuccino something and let the Quintero do its job. All right, so the test is finally done, and it took a couple of minutes to complete it because he that current status is clean and in order to view the detail report. We just need to click on this bottom and down here, we're gonna see more about what the stool has scanned on our site. We can see that this is the overview off the report and malicious files. Zero Suspicious 50 potential suspicion 50 clean files for it seems that it has cleaned for files for something. Not sure what it is. Extend Rawlings, Detective 69 I frames Canon zero black least did know. So let's see, on the scan, it files analysis. And here you see that it actually provides us with the plane, that vile someone and just click here and see what actually has done. It doesn't seem to provide what it actually has cleaned, but I guess it's school that it has clean it it so that we do not face any security issues On the additional information, we can see also the type off references, the main external wings and also black least looks in the links. This seems to be good as well. And finally, we have black listen, staples. So we are actually clean on all of those different tools that he still has scanning our citing.

So here you can see that the scan has completed, and basically because he does the normal issues activity or mile there has been detected. We have no suspicious hire a score in consul ISI pages either. And down here, you can see that it has checked for black least phishing malware driver downloads warms back towards Georgian suspicious. I frames heuristic viruses, suspicious calls, suspicious connections and, finally, suspicious activity. So our site has passed all of those tests, and it looks like our side. This pretty much like the Fort Knox, really safe and seems to be almost impossible to break. True. So that fuss about tool number four Let's go over to the total number five. Stay tuned, see next. 6.

So by the full Texas you information about the seven frameworks used to buy exponent application, return expose headers, this header can be used to help identify security flaws which may exist that the result of the choice of technology exposed in these headers. However, I'm not using our high speed off net site. And if you're not a feeling the familiar retires paid is basically ah, programming language used to called website pretty much similar to the ph. B. Even if BHP us completely different programming language. Anyway, I am fine with this, and it looks like our side is pretty much safe. Just like in the other tools that you checked.
