How to Make Your Webpage Secure from Attacks
It is possible to maintain your webpage safe from hackers. Primarily, you should update your software regularly. The information which you provide in your error messages is most important which should not display like ‘password is incorrect’ or ‘username is incorrect’. In this situation, if hacker enters a username in trial and error method, hacker may easily find password also. So, it should be like “username and/or password incorrect. In the same way, use complex passwords which are in an encrypted form. You should do validation at both server and browser side. SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is a protocol which enhances your security level when server and client communicates.
