If you’re using QNAP as a NAS, you probably know that QNAP allows you to install web apps onto QNAP server. Web apps are cool, but these web apps can be a security nightmare. This is why you often have to upgrade these web apps. One example of a popular web app that you can install on QNAP server is WordPress. Anyhow, whether a web app might carry a computer vulnerability or not, you want to secure your QNAP’s web apps with .htaccess file. By adding .htaccess file to /share/Web directory in QNAP server, you add one more hoop (security layer) for hackers to have dealt with. In the video right after the break, I’m going to show you how to add a very simple .htaccess file to QNAP’s /share/Web directory to thwart a possible malicious user which might be able to bypass the router’s firewall and hack your QNAP server using web apps’ vulnerabilities. Enjoy!!!
