Is there an easy way to record and be given an alert by email when certain file types are uploaded to my server?
Recently i have had my server hacked and php files were uploaded without my knowledge. The files were on the server for a long time before i spotted them.
I have patched the security hole that allowed the files to be uploaded but since i have so many files on my server - it is very difficult to know in future if this happens again.
I was hoping on an alert by email by anything such as a .php file was uploaded - that way if i have not uploaded this myself i will know immediately that there is a problem.
Perhaps there is a way to set this in apache or a pre-coded script is available somewhere online?
If not - would you think this is a large project to code from scratch?
Any help appreciated.
