How To Prevent URL Redirection Attack

Hello my name is Montie with Panhandle Web Services. I am the founder and lead SEO & digital brand strategist for Panhandle Web Services. This article will discuss 6 simple ways I have found to prevent URL redirection attacks on your websites. We commonly build with WordPress but this applies to any kind of CMS or website. These tips can be used in your business and are also used in our everyday business practices.

  1. Keep website software such as CMS and ecommerce platforms up-to-date with the latest security updates.
  2. Monitor website pages for malicious redirection code that can be added by hackers.
  3. Use plugins like WP All In One Security or Wordfence.
  4. Use complex passwords and two-factor authentication for website admins and other critical user accounts.
  5. Leverage the power of a WAF (web application firewall) to protect against various application-level attacks, including URL redirection attacks.
  6. Educate and train employees on the importance of security awareness and how to detect and prevent malicious activity.
