No. During a website scan, SiteLock downloads the relevant files via FTP to a secure server and perform scans there. There is no impact to the website content, code, bandwidth, or server resources and no software needs to be installed on the server.
Servers have different layers for communication. The OSI model has 7 layers. The firewall provided by most hosting companies is going to be focused on layers 3 and 4 of the OSI model. These layers are set to always allow http requests from port 80. Port 80 is set to always allow HTTP requests from Web clients. This is what allows a site to be visible to the internet. However, malware attacks today can be sent via an HTTP request through port 80. The difference between a safe request and a malicious request is the content being sent. A host's firewall does not examine the content being sent via port 80, it is merely interested on ensuring the the request is the correct type through the right port. If it is an HTTP request, it will be allowed through port 80. A web application firewall (WAF) works at Layer 7 of the OSI model, which is the application layer. A WAF utilizes a general rule set to determine if the content being sent is safe or malicious.
SMART is the Secure Malware Alert and Removal Tool (SMART). SMART can be set to 1 of 2 settings; "Yes, automatically remove the malware found" or "No, just warn me". SMART performs an inside-out scan by connecting to the site via FTP and,making as copy of the website files to download to a SiteLock secure server. SMART is able to identify and remove coding from the files. Once the scan is complete, if malware was removed, a clean copy of the file(s) will be uploaded to the server,replacing the infected file(s). If you choose to set SMART to "No, just warn me," you will only be notified of the malware found and have the ability to review the findings inside the dashboard.
