Automated backup recovery script added to the cron jobs

Published on February 13, 2012 By Anti-Malware Admin

We figured out that the .htaccess files were getting hacked about every 71 minutes, with a few random exceptions. We could not keep running my automated script every hour so I made a bash script from the command line and set up a cron job to run the script once every minute. If it found any differences between the .htaccess file and the .htaccess.bak file then it would overwrite the changes immediately, and send us an email.
