Top 4 FTP Exploits Used Hackers and the Solutions
Enterprises rely on safe and reliable information access methods to meet today's rapidly developing market demand. Accordingly, sharing data internally and externally is essential for any organization. File Transfer Protocol FTP is one of the earliest and still used data sharing methods. Although IT teams and business users are familiar with this, FTP lacks much vital security, compliance, and workflow requirements in modern organizations, especially in data security. The following are four different FTP vulnerabilities attacked by hackers: 1. Anonymous authentication Anonymous authentication is an FTP vulnerability, which allows users to use FTP username or log in anonymously. In many cases, users will provide their email address as a password. However, the user's login credentials and the commands used are unencrypted, visible, and easy to access. At the same time, any data sent via FTP or hosted on an anonymous FTP server will not be protected. Once, the FBI found that hackers actively used FTP to target medical and dental industries and access protected health information. 2. Directory traversal attack Directory traversal attack is another FTP vulnerability, and its successful attack will overwrite or create unauthorized files, which are stored outside the Webroot folder. In turn, the original FTP owner is subject to the permission of files or directories and the control of hackers. 3. Cross-site scripting When attackers use Web applications to send malicious code, XSS attacks are usually sent to end-users in the form of browser-side scripts. Defects that allow attacks to succeed are very common and may occur anywhere where user input is used without verification or coding in the output generated by Web applications. Attackers can use XXS to send malicious scripts to unsuspecting users. The end user's browser cannot know that the script is not trusted and execute the script. Because the malicious script thinks that the script comes from a trusted source, it can access any data, session token, or other sensitive information stored on the user's local terminal that is reserved by the browser and used with the site. 4. Malware attack based on Dridex It was discovered for the first time in 2014 that Dridex malware has been re-invented and introduced in unexpected ways after the UK became the target of bank attacks. Internet users targeted by Dridex malware will open Word or Excel email attachments, which will cause macros to download the malware and infect computers, thus exposing users to bank theft. In the latest version of Dridex malware, hackers use FTP sites and credentials to avoid being detected by e-mail gateway and network policy of trusted FTP. Updating FTP credentials regularly can help prevent Dridex-based attacks. As far as the FTP server itself is concerned, it can no longer meet the system functions required by the big data business in the information age. From the point of view of security, transfer efficiency, and compliance, the FTP server itself cannot be expanded and it is very likely to bring high-cost loss. In the big data market, big file transfer software came into being and was promised to meet the above business requirements. Large file transfer technology provides higher control and security than FTP, which usually has the following features: - In-depth report - The global visibility of all data transfer activities - End-to-end security, encrypting data in transit and at rest - Performance indicators, monitoring, and support for compliance requirements - Workflow automation Raysync- large file transfer software High performance Raysync high-speed transfer protocol, the bandwidth utilization rate is over 96%, the transfer rate is increased by 100X, and TB-level large files and massive small files are easily transmitted.

How Raysync Solves the Difficulty in Large File Transfer?
More and more enterprises gradually realize that the amount of data generated by enterprises is increasing year by year, especially for enterprises with overseas business, which have customers in Japan, India, the United States, Southeast Asia, and other places. It is very difficult to transmit these data to the mainland for computing services. The amount of data is too large, and the amount of data contained in a project ranges from several hundred GB to several hundred TB. In terms of network transmission, the bandwidth utilization rate of transnational large file transmission is very low, because the current network transmission protocol is TCP transmission protocol, which is a stable and reliable transmission protocol. It is necessary to ensure that the data is transmitted without packet loss and the file is intact. Therefore, when the latency and packet loss appear together, it will choose to reduce the speed to ensure the quality. The farther the transmission distance is, the greater the probability of latency and packet loss. Therefore, in order to reduce the packet loss and ensure transmission quality and stability, the speed will be reduced. Raysync solves the problem of file transmission. Under the condition of high latency and packet loss, Raysync can improve the packet rate through self-developed protocols, control the congestion on the network, improve the transmission efficiency, and ensure the reliability and stability of the transmitted data. The bandwidth of Shenzhen is 100 megabytes, and files are transmitted from Shenzhen to Los Angeles, USA. Without Raysync, the bandwidth speed of 100 megabytes can only be less than 1 megabyte . If Raysync velocity is used at both ends, it can reach 92 megahertz. Raysync abandons the original TCP protocol during transmission, and takes over data packets and traffic packets through its own transmission protocol, thus improving transmission efficiency. As an expert in the field of large file transfer, Raysync will build an interactive bridge for the Internet, big data, artificial intelligence, and the real economy based on the self-develop high-speed transfer protocol.

The History of Large File Transfer
The first file is exchanged via removable media. In the mid-1980s, asynchronous modems took over where the dual synchronization stopped. Then, in the 1990s, the Internet changed the game of using persistent connections to transfer files between enterprises via HTTP, FTP, and SMTP. In the following years, a large number of B2B managed file transfer solutions emerged, which helped organizations meet the increasing security, compliance, and operational requirements of mobile information. Despite all these changes, business-to-business file transfers are still basically the same as in the 1970s. The transportation channels and agreement portfolio have changed, but the process and methods are the same. In 2015, B2B data exchange belonged exclusively to technical users who performed file-based batches, and the pricing of professional file transfer software solutions reflected this. For example, when two companies want to automate data exchange, the IT departments of both companies need to discuss data format, transmission protocol, encryption, transmission confirmation, and error/exception handling. Considering that the automatic file transfer function is not the highest priority of most corporate IT departments, it can be a long and frustrating process for business users who delay or lose waiting for IT revenue. This process can take several weeks to automate the data exchange with a company, and it must be repeated for hundreds or even thousands of customers/suppliers again and again. Because of this, the B2B file transfer and integration market has become very mature. What is a "secure, managed" file transfer? It is important to exclude some term definitions. File transfer is a general term that applies to the act of transferring data through a computer network, private or public, and therefore the Internet. Hosted file transfer is designed to facilitate file transfer, it is a software or service used to provide secure internal, external, and temporary data transfer over the network. Secure file transfer is another term, which is usually an integral part of file transfer software; the secure part usually refers to a specific function. Historically, programmers wrote scripts to automate batch FTP functions. This works fine within a limited range, and if the configuration is rarely changed. However, when an organization exchanges data with many customers and partners, and when passwords, libraries, and IP addresses are constantly changing, relying on scripts can quickly become troublesome. Using hosted file transfer products can help your business avoid data leakage. You will get restrictions on allowed senders and recipients, centralized recording of data transmission, secure encryption of data, and functions that integrate with data loss prevention products.

How to Make File Transfer More Secure?
In fact, today's business is increasingly driven by data. In order for your organization to be successful, it is important not only to send, but also receive, and access large amounts of data securely. However, the more you transfer, the greater the possibility of file security issues. So what would you do? As the saying goes, the best offense is a good defense. Although in many ways, the right communication solution can help. how should we better ensure the security of file transfer? Knowledge is the key. With the boom in the use of private chat applications, sharing data with a finger tap has become second nature. We quickly share GIFs, pictures, music, videos, documents, and sometimes sensitive data; usually not verifying the content or intended recipients, or worse, considering the consequences of sending the wrong content to the wrong individual. First, you need to be trained on the risks of transferring data. All your employees play an indispensable role in the security of the organization. Therefore, every employee must know why it is vital that every file is kept in the right hands. Transferring data on a private peer-to-peer network is a more secure option. Sending and receiving files peer-to-peer keeps sensitive data on your network. By avoiding middlemen, you can avoid potential error handling and malicious external threats. In addition, Raysync is faster than cloud sharing. Just drag and drop the file into the chat window, as long as you have a stable internet connection, and voila. No additional login. No upload and retrieval. No need to increase bandwidth. This means being able to enable and disable features for individuals, user groups, or all users. Importantly, it also means taking advantage of these functions. In this way, you can rest assured that your employees can use the platform efficiently and appropriately. You might think that a separate file transfer solution can provide you with better security. But it is still limited to one function. In fact, your file transfer is not the only aspect of internal communications you need to protect. Your text and group chats, voice, and video calls also need to be protected. If they happen on different platforms, the possibility of carelessness, error, and impropriety will only increase. Simplifying all communications on one platform is a better way to ensure that data stays in good condition, no matter how the data is transmitted. Protecting your data in today's hyper-connected world is no easy task. Although you cannot keep you alert for a second, your team must always pay attention and remain alert. But by paying attention to these tips, you can better protect file transfers while protecting your team communication.

Discussion on Data Transfer Security of Raysync
In the era of big data, the production and dissemination of information are growing exponentially, and the transmission of enterprise files is facing the current situation of insecurity. Error in file data: a large amount of data is not transmitted in time, resulting in data error, and manual error checking is too cumbersome. Hard disk loss: large files are transmitted in the form of sending and receiving hard disks. Once the hard disk is lost, the consequences are unimaginable. Information leakage: Too frequent FTP transmission leads to firewall attacks and information leakage. Loss of files: massive files cannot be transmitted completely at one time, which is prone to file loss. Information security event inventory: Memcache DDoS Attack: on March 1, 2018, GitHub suffered a DDoS attack with a size of 1.35TB. in the following days, NETSCOUT Arbor reconfirmed a reflection amplification DDoS attack with a height of 1.7 Tbps caused by Memcache DDoS. Data leakage incident: A company announced that the database of a hotel was invaded, and at most about 500 million guests' information was leaked. In the same period, a special user posted that the resume information of over 200 million users in China was leaked. How to ensure the security of big data transmission. Let's take a look at how Raysync experts interpret it. Data security protection: TLS algorithm encryption, AES-256 financial grade encryption strength, protect user data privacy. Raysync protocol only needs to open one UDP port to complete communication, which is safer than opening a large number of firewall network ports. FTPS encryption technology adds SSL security function to the FTP protocol and data channel. Encrypt certificate configuration, support configuration of confidential certificates, and make service access more secure. Security mechanisms: Scan CVE vulnerability risk library regularly to solve risky code vulnerabilities. In the development process, Valgrind/Purify is used to check the memory leakage. Adopt high-performance SSL VPN encryption to provide user access security services in various scenarios. Account security protection: Adopt a double factor strong authentication system, support USBKey, terminal hardware ID binding, and other password forms for authentication. The user's password saved in the data is encrypted based on the AES-256 encryption algorithm, and even the developer can't recover the source password from the saved ciphertext. Raysync is a professional service provider of enterprise-level file transmission, and it is also the first enterprise in China to provide commercial high-performance file transmission products. Raysync provides customers with high-performance, stable, and safe data transmission services in IT, film and television, biological gene, manufacturing, and many other industries.

What are the Features of Fast File Transfer?
Thinking of the need for file transfer every day, I will get annoyed. If there is the fastest file transfer software, it can save a lot of time. Then for this user’s needs, let’s introduce the Raysync file transfer software. See if the transmission speed is so fast, so fast that you can't believe it. How Can File Transfer Reflect Fast Features? First of all, of course, it can be fast when the file is large. If it is more than ten MB, there is no way to show it in terms of speed. On the contrary, if you want to intuitively see that the file transfer is fast, then it must be based on TB or Only a few hundred GB of files can be tested to get results. Secondly, in addition to the fast file transfer speed, the stability of file transfer is also a key factor. After all, the stability of file transfer in the past is related to the integrity of the file received by the recipient. Finally, the security of file transfer is also a very important factor, especially when it comes to sensitive files to avoid theft. If it is an insecure transfer, it is easy to be attacked. Of course, it needs to have better security. The industry also It will be special. In the end, the speed, stability, and security are high, which can be reflected in the Raysync file transfer software. Fast file transfer Raysync's large file transfer speed is hundreds of times faster than FTP and HTTP, which maximizes the full bandwidth without affecting other network traffic. Adopt a new network transfer protocol, provide TB, PB-level super-large file accelerated transfer service, the transfer speed is a hundred times faster than FTP. Stable file transfer In the transfer process of Raysync, in order to ensure the stability and integrity of data transfer, Raysync transfer uses mechanisms such as breakpoint retransfer, error retransfer, multiple file verification, and intelligent synchronization to ensure that the data is transmitted due to network failures, abnormal transfers, etc. When a situation occurs, data transfer can be effectively guaranteed, while reducing output time and reducing workload. Secure file transfer In order to ensure the security of transfer data and prevent data leakage, cracking, monitoring, and other security issues, Raysync transfer strengthens internal data communication security management and control, adopts online banking-level AES-256 encryption technology, and uses SSL encrypted transfer during transfer to effectively ensure data security. At the same time, Raysync transfer uses access authority and OS authority settings to achieve more stringent access control. This is the Raysync fast file transfer software.
