Dear Experts,

Using a VB6 application, is there a way to programmatically create a text file within a specific folder on my web site, and then modify its content?

Thanks!

No, not per se. Cause there is no protocol for doing this. You may use HTTP or FTP to upload a file. Or you may interact with a service (web service, cgi) on your server.

So the question is: of what kind are your modifications?

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

That is an alternative that would be acceptable.

To clarify, I am looking for a way to do this programmatically, not manually with an FTP tool. It will be important to keep the FTP password secure and unexposed in the process.

Can anyone help?
