What is a webshell?

Webshell is a malware that allows a vulnerability in web source code to illegally upload to a web server and then execute various commands on the system.
When a web shell is inserted into a web server source, administrator privileges are seized, resulting in not only web page tampering, but also leaking personal information.

Webshells are the number one incidence in recent security incidents, and the application of obfuscation technology can bypass detection of existing security solutions (such as web firewalls), so robust webshell detection and defense tools are needed to solve this problem.
