Backdoors are pieces of code that allow attackers to bypass authentication, maintain their access to the server and reinfect files. Some of those malicious files can be as simple as a single line of code, allowing the execution of remote code, or complex algorithms, providing different functions to the attacker.

Webshell allows unauthorized access and control of an affected system by a remote attacker. Using them, attacker is able to run set of commands for various actions such as file manipulation, system information gathering and similar. gp_shell is a complex malware with capability of updating its own code. It also stores its configuration and other data locally on the affected system.


Any PHP based web site (often through outdated WordPress, Joomla, osCommerce, Magento, Drupal and stolen passwords).
