Get Started with Attack Detection

Attack Detection tracks data sent from your website (usually by Javascript). This can help combat Magecart attacks that can steal customer information on your site.

RapidSpike looks at where your website is sending information and marks these destinations as safe or pending. This works on both self-hosted JavaScript files as well as scripts hosted by a third party.

Where to find Attack Detection in RapidSpike

Go to Dashboards > Attack Detection to view the main dashboard.

This displays all your host data in one place. On this page you can:

  • View a list of safe and pending hosts
  • See how many checks Rapidspike has made on your site
  • Check how many hosts the monitor has scanned over the last 7 days.

Additionally, you can view a Safe List to review hosts you have trusted.
