About Cerber Laboratory


Cerber Laboratory is a forensic team at the Cerber Tech company that is founded by developers of the WP Cerber Security plugin. The team studies and analyzes patterns of hacker and botnet attacks, malware, vulnerabilities in major plugins and how they are exploitable on WordPress powered websites.

We at Cerber Lab believe that successful defense and bulletproof protection are possible by using cooperative effort only. Hacker teams on the dark side of the web are well organized and use automated inventory, so do we!

For this reason, we’ve created a constantly updating database of malicious IP addresses and malware. That’s why WP Cerber Security with the Cerber Lab database successfully mitigates attacks and attempts to break into WordPress and user accounts and makes it impossible to conduct successful attacks.

Cerber Tech has a set of publicly available web servers (nodes) which are distributed around the world in different Internet zones. These servers collect attempts to break into WordPress powered websites from thousands of malicious IP addresses, botnets, infected websites, hacked devices around the world in real time. That helps the team to develop new algorithms to defend websites against new threats that are appearing every day.

Private data remains private

We at Cerber Tech take your privacy and our reputation very seriously. The servers do not collect any personal, sensitive or website usage data in any form. The servers collect and store malicious IP addresses and their malicious activity only (as they show on the Lockouts admin page).

How to opt-out (disable sending malicious IP addresses to Cerber Lab)
For some reason you wish to opt-out. No problem, you can do that by unchecking the single checkbox in the settings of the plugin. Go to the WP Cerber admin page -> Main Settings tab and uncheck the Cerber Lab connection checkbox.

The Cerber Lab has been founded in December 2016 and started operating in January 2017.

I'm a team lead in Cerber Tech. I'm a software & database architect, WordPress - PHP - SQL - JavaScript developer. I started coding in 1993 on IBM System/370 (yeah, that was amazing days) and today software engineering at Cerber Tech is how I make my living. I've taught to have high standards for myself as well as using them in developing software solutions.
