Tor and Scanner Protection

Enhance your web security with ModShield SB:Tor and Scanner Protection.

What is Tor?

TOR (The Onion Router) is a free and open-source software that enables anonymous communication on the internet. It works by routing network traffic through several volunteer-operated servers or nodes, encrypting the data at each step.

This helps to obscure the original source and destination of the network traffic, making it difficult to track or trace the user’s identity or location.

TOR is commonly used by individuals who want to maintain privacy and anonymity online, but it can also be utilized by malicious actors for illicit activities

What is a Scanner?

A scanner, in the context of computer security, refers to a tool or software program designed to scan a network, system, or application for vulnerabilities or weaknesses. Scanners can perform various types of scans, such as port scans, vulnerability scans, or malware scans, to identify potential security issues.

It’s important to note that while scanners can be used by security professionals or system administrators for legitimate security purposes, they can also be leveraged by malicious individuals or hackers to identify vulnerable targets for exploitation or unauthorized access. It is always recommended to use scanning tools responsibly and with proper authorization

Modshield SB’s Comprehensive Approach to TorThreat Mitigation

Modshield SB employs various techniques to protect web applications from threats associated with the TOR network. Here are some ways it helps in safeguarding your web app:

  1. TOR exit nodes blocking: Modshield SB maintains a list of known TOR exit nodes and can block traffic originating from these nodes. By doing so, it prevents potential attacks and unauthorized access through the TOR network
  2. Behavioral analysis: Modshield SB analyzes incoming traffic patterns and behavior that are commonly associated with TOR usage. It looks for suspicious activities such as repeated access attempts, unusual browsing patterns, or known TOR-related signatures. By identifying and flagging such activities, Modshield SB helps in proactively protecting the web application
  3. Customizable blacklists/whitelists: Modshield SB offers flexibility in customizing blacklists/whitelists for TOR traffic. This allows organizations to define specific rules based on their unique requirements and security policies

These protective measures not only help in blocking potential threats originating from the TOR network, but they also enhance the overall security and integrity of web applications, reducing the risk of unauthorized access and potential attacks.

Secure Your Digital Frontier with Modshield SB’s Pioneering Tor/Scanner Protection

A Web Application Firewall (WAF) like Modshield SB acts as a security shield for your application, standing guard against various threats, including illicit scanners. Here’s how it works:

  1. Traffic Inspection:
    Modshield SB sits between the internet and your application, inspecting all incoming traffic. This includes requests from legitimate users, bots, and potentially, illicit scanners.
  2. Signature-based Detection:
    Modshield SB has a built-in database of known attack signatures, like fingerprints of malicious activity. It scans incoming requests for these signatures. If a request matches a known threat, the WAF blocks it from reaching your application.
  3. Behavioural Analysis:
    Beyond just signatures, Modshield SB also analyzes the behavior of incoming requests. It can look for suspicious patterns, such as:

    • Excessive scanning: A large number of requests from a single IP address, probing for vulnerabilities.
    • Unusual URL parameters: Malformed or unexpected parameters in a request, potentially indicating an attempt to exploit an injection vulnerability.
    • Uncommon HTTP methods: Using rarely used HTTP methods, like PUT or DELETE, for malicious purposes.
  4. Continuous Updates:
    The WAF’s database of signatures and threat patterns is constantly updated by our team of security researchers and vendors. This ensures the WAF stays ahead of evolving threats and can protect against the latest illicit scanning techniques.
  5. Customization:
    Modshield SB allows you to customize their security rules and settings to fit your specific needs and application vulnerabilities. This can involve:

    • Whitelisting: Allowing traffic from trusted sources to bypass certain checks.
    • Blacklisting: Blocking traffic from known malicious IP addresses or domains.
    • Fine-tuning sensitivity: Adjusting the threshold for triggering suspicious behavior alerts.
