Cybercrime and Malicious Activity

When you host your website with us, you should be allowed the same rights to privacy and trespass as you would in your office or home. No person or organisation has the right to hack or attempt to hack your website. 

We take security extremely seriously. Aside from a Cisco Firewall and THREE software firewalls, we also run custom scripts to monitor malicious activity and take the necessary steps block this kind of traffic. We report ALL malicious activity to ABUSEIPDB.

We consider ‘penetration testing’ as attempting to hack or circumvent server security and is therefore treated in the same way as a malicious attempt to break in. We will always prosecute if appropriate.

If we detect malicious traffic coming from within the UK, that individual is potentially breaking three laws:-

Computer Misuse Act 1990

Communications Act 2003

Fraud Act 2006

We report all UK malicious activity to Norfolk and Suffolk Police Cybercrime Division, our evidence includes IP address of the malicious traffic, geographic information relating to the IP address, the organisation providing the infrastructure for the hacker (ie. The ISP). In the UK, ISP’s are now responsible for resolving IP addresses to the user of the computer or mobile devices at the time stamp of our logs. It is therefore possible to trace malicious traffic in the UK to it’s source.
