Protect opencart admin dashboard URL • Secure Access extension
Protect opencart admin dashboard from intrusion attacks by disabling direct access to the login URL.
A user defined or a random key is added to the login URL to make the URL impossible to guess.
Admin login URL will be changed to something like: http://my-opencart-store.com/admin/?key=SECRET123
- Protects admin login page from hackers and unauthorized access
- No need to rename admin folder and make changes in all vqmod extensions
- Home page will be displayed to all visitors who try to access the
- Protection from direct POST to the login URL: which means that if your website receives thousands of
POST /admin HTTP/1.1requests without the key, then the database will not be hit and requests will be rejected and redirected to a static 404 page.
- To prevent brute force attacks, custom error page like a 404 or a static page can be displayed when the secret key is missing in the url. Which is even better (performance) than opencart php-generated 404 page (no database hits).
Please note that the key could have been changed by users, thus you will not be able to login. If this is the case, please contact us, so that we give your the new key.
