Google Analytics and Web Skimming

  1. This hardly needs to be said but if you have a system that does not have a security software then you are exposing yourself, your account, and your site to possible exploitation. Download and install any of the popular security software and it will help you watch your internet activity closely, in order to catch nefarious codes.
  2. Download and install only web apps that are from verified platforms. You expose your site to attacks and serious threats when you do not adhere to this principle. Also, it is necessary that you constantly update your software’s so that your sites are kept safe and you can rest assured that no harm will come.
  3. This is common advice but it is worth mentioning; don’t use weak passwords for your admin accounts. It is dangerous and opens your site to exploitation.
  4. Always keep the rights of users to a bearable minimum because this will allow you to track user traffic efficiently and easily filter through any query framework and user data in order to reduce the possibilities of malicious code injection by third parties.
